21/134 Archway forming entrance
to St Martin's churchyard


Archway. 1859 for Archdeacon Stonehouse of Owston Ferry, and his sister-in-
law Frances Sanders. Limestone ashlar. Gothic style. Crenellated stepped
tripartite gateway with central carriage arch flanked by lower pedestrian
arches and short lower wing walls. East and west sides both have chamfered
plinth, buttresses with offsets flanking pointed chamfered arches with
hoodmoulds and head stops. East side, facing street, has worn dedication
inscription in Gothic lettering over arches, and a pair of armorial relief
tablets in spandrels to central arch: one shield with arms of Stonehouse
impaling Sanders, the other a lozenge with arms of Frances Sanders. Ridge-
coped crenellations throughout. Pedestrian entrances have ornate Gothic-
style cast-iron gates with dog-bars, decorative panels and finials. William
Stonehouse and Frances Sanders were both notable local benefactors: in 1840
Stonehouse provided the church porch (in similar style to the churchyard
archway), and Frances Sanders, besides gifts to the church, provided the
Market Place Lamp (qv) and the Almshouses in Bagsby Lane (qv). J Veale and
