3/15 Lych gate approximately 12 metres
- south-west of Church of St Mary
Lych gate. Circa 1850 probably by J Hayward. Local pinky-brown conglomerate
sandstone with lightly-tooled rusticated grey limestone ashlar quoins and cream-
coloured sandstone detail; red tile roof with fleur-de-lys crested ridge tiles.
Both sides are identical. They contain wide 2-centred chamfered arches. The ends
are buttressed and have weathered offsets. The top of each arch is flanked by
circular medallions with moulded frames and contain fleuree crosses in bas relief.
Along the top is a moulded cornice with ballflower enrichment. The roof is hipped
each end.
The lych gate contains timber double gates. These are panelled with diagonal planks
below the lockrail and open above containing vertical struts with chamfered edges
and the top rail cut to give ogee arches over the gaps. The top rail has a cast
iron crest of fleur-de-lys.
