corner. Late C18-early C19. Hearse house: coursed squared limestone, stone
slate roof. Rectangular single-storey building with C20 board double doors
at east end and small Gothick west window, no glazing. Hipped roof.
Railing: wrought iron, approximately 80 centimetres wide and 1.5 metres
high. Stone sill, rails with spearhead finials, ramped top edge. 2 panels
with scrolls and roundels, at lock rail and top rail height. Gate pier:
