Detail of Eagle Gates, Aldermaston Park, Aldermaston
Detail of the Eagle Gates, which are between the two lodges south of The Loosey, in the Street, Aldermaston. The bird is actually not an eagle but a falcon- the motif of the Congreve family.
Gates and piers: early C18. 2 rusticated brick piers with stone plinths and copings with ball finials. 2 exuberant wrought iron gates with overthrow. The lodges once formed part of a U-plan
house from which the centre has been removed. The wrought iron gates came from Midgham House in early C19.
