Arch

The Romans introduced stone arches as entrances and gateways, for example Newport Arch in Lincoln.

Stone and brick arches became features in gardens. In the 18C at Coleby Hall, (HE Grade II) Thomas Scrope (1723-1792, MP for Lincoln) erected a Roman Arch on his approach drive, using stone from nearby Temple Bruer.
