Gate pillar with nice brick capp detail

I liked this little detail to the top of a gate post, its all in brick and there are about 8 different gates and most of them have this detail, I spoke to one of the old gardeners and to his knowledge there are no repairs to this since it was built nearly 200 years ago, can’t be bad, good quality mortar, and time taken to get it right, no rushing to beat the deadline, oh and the bricks were local to the site, clay dug from a local pit, mixed and fired on site.
