These imposing brick pillars contain two carved, stone plaques, of a lion on the left hand side and a unicorn on the right. Over time the crispness of the carving has become muted by weather and pollution and the lettering has become faded.

As Trustee of the Playing Field the Parish Council has commissioned a local company, Blackwell's Stonecraft Ltd to clean and repair them, returning them to their former glory.

The work is expected to take place early next year at a cost of £140.00 for each gate post.
