Lych gate to Church of St Andrew
Lych gate. 1911 (RCHME). Ashlar plinth, timber frame, tile
roof. Square plan, with plinth walls to chamfered top and
plain tile sill carrying a moulded plate; the sides have a
flat segmental arch with central drop above a transom on 4
vertical rails, and the returned ends have a narrow bay each
side to a pointed arch, with an arch-braced centre bay.
Timbers generally are chamfered and stopped. The front has a
low pair of C20 gates. The hipped gambrel roof with small open
gablets to N and S has diagonal struts to the hip rafters, and
is boarded below the tiles. A short wooden bench each side. A
tablet to the front records a restoration of 1950.
This is of interest architecturally, but also historically
because it incorporates timbers rescued from the C15 Court
House at Sutton Poyntz, formerly located opposite Sutton Mill
(qv), and destroyed by fire in 1908.
(RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 362).
