The two lower pictures are entrances to New Hall (Lord Gerard's Estate). The left one is the main entrance on Warrington Road, ued by dignitaries and for formal occasions. The one on the right is a service entrance on Liverpool Rd used by tradesmen and general suppliers. There is another entrance at Ashton Cross for access to the west and one on Kenyons Lane at the lodge and estate office.
