Gatepiers in churchyard of St Mary.


Pair of gatepiers. Dated 1736. Ashlar. Two square piers. Sides
facing green have projecting plinth with moulded tops. The bodies of
the piers have two lower raised and fielded rectangular panels set
vertically. Above these is a smaller rectangular panel set
horizontally with a further panel set vertically above that, the right
hand one being dated. Cyma moulded caps with apparently later finials
with round ogee moulded stems supporting large balls. The rear faces
to the churchyard are similar, the inner faces have rectangular
rebates with acorn finials. Ramped walling to either side and late
C19 gates between (neither listed).
