2/281 Gate-piers, gates and walls
- flanking gateway at approximately
15 metres east of Church of St


Gate-piers, gates and walls flanking gateway. Circa early C19. Granite rubble with granite dressings. Wide gateway piercing churchyard wall. Within the gateway on either side of a flagged walk are stone settles and in the middle of the walk is a coffin rest with rounded ends. Gate-piers are square-on-plan granite monoliths and there is an iron overthrow linking their heads. Settles have dressed granite seats and low backs with granite copings. Pair of original wrought-iron gates have roundels to the lock rail, round-arched bracing below and form a segmental arch with their top rails when close. The closely-set bars have arrow-head finials. Overthrow forms a round arch with a lamp bracket over the middle and there is a bifurcated scrolled detail.
