The Gate House
The Gate House
The Gate House at the entrance to Croxteth Park

The Gate House marks the entrance to Croxeth Park.

On the walls of the Gate House there is an ‘s’ and a coat of arms, which stands for Lord Sefton.

There is a bay window that enabled the Gate keeper to see and hear the horses or someone coming.

On the gates of Croxteth park, there are lions holding a flag with the Molyneaux cross on it.

The gatehouse belonged to Lord Sefton, however the Molyneaux family built it.

It was built on the Molyneaux site.

It was made from sandstone.

It has a gargoyle on the drain pipe which drained the water from the roof.

The man who lived in the gate house opened and closed the gates (which was a very important job)
