Listing Text


4/88 Gatepiers,
railings, steps
and walls to
graveyard of
St. Michael and
20.4.77 All Angels


Gatepiers, railings, steps and graveyard walls. Gatepiers:
probably 1815: 2 pairs which are rusticated ashlar, have
bases and cornices, one of which is terminated in acorn
finials. The iron railings which adjoin the west gateposts
are terminated in a similar pier. The gates are in
decorative ironwork. The stone steps to the west have a
right-angled flight: the parapet walls are in squared rubble
and 2 of the coping stones bear the dates 1857 and 1734.
The walls of the graveyard are of squared rubble and hammer-
dressed stone and date largely form the C18. Datestones
incorporated in the wall include TBM 1769, 1804, 1815 and
1823. The round-topped coping stones are numbered 1-33
consecutively on the west and east sides and A-Z on the
north defining the graveyard plot layout. A weathered
buttress supports the wall (which is a retaining wall in
parts) at the south-west.
