Description

Lawn at the bottom of the Pinetum, looking towards the wrought iron gate designed by Robin Spencer. Pillars topped with carved stone pineapples on either side of the gate, and clipped hollies to the right.
After Robin's death in 1982, Sybil retrieved the gate he had designed from storage and erected it at the entrance from the Orchard to the Pinetum. Carved stone pineapples were used to top the supporting pillars.
