A gateway forming part of a self-contained group alongside an adjacent gate lodge (see 22819001) with the resulting ensemble not only making a pleasing visual statement in an estate village street scene, but also illustrating the continued development or "improvement" of the Dromana House estate by Henry Villiers-Stuart (1803-74).
