Liniel Law monumental gateway (Rothley with Hollinghill)
Two square piers remain of a large ornamental gateway on the summit of Liniel Law stands on the boundary wall of the Wallington Estate. It is in ruins but any gate was probably freestanding as there are signs of any gate fittings. It was not a defensive gateway and was probably built by Sir Walter Blackett who purchased the eastern half of Greenleighton farm in about 1758.
