Weston Underwood: Weston House Gate Piers by Nigel Cox
Weston Underwood: Weston House Gate Piers

These stone piers presumably at one time supported gates across the access to Weston House at the north-east end of the High Street in the village. Today the road is a public through route to Olney. The piers are Grade II Listed and the English Heritage website describes them thus:- "Gatepiers and attached walls. Circa 1700. Stone walls either side swept up in curves to panelled ashlar stone piers on moulded plinths. Panelled sides. Inner pilasters and scroll brackets on outer sides resting on walls, moulded cornices and large carved pineapples on plinths." The footpath goes through its own small arch on the right.
