PARISH OF ELVASTON
Churchyard Walls and Attached Curtain Wall Between Coach House and
(formerly partly listed with Elvaston Castle')
Walls and gateways. Early C19 by James Wyatt for the Earls of
Harrington and mid C19 with C18 gates. Ashlar. Curtain wall
with churchyard wall attached at right angles to western tower
of the central gateway. The churchyard wall is low with
tapering plinth and ridgeback copings. To northern end there
are pair of plain stone piers, also with ridgeback copings, and
a flight of steps up into the churchyard. Between the piers are
a pair of C18 wrought iron gate with scrolled centre panels.
The curtain wall has a wide double chamfered pointed arch into
the courtyard to centre with machicolated embattled parapets
over. To east side there is a two storey tower, also with
embattled parapets, which has a pointed Y-tracery window with
hoodmould to ground floor and similar smaller, untraceried
window above. Beyond to east there is a recessed section of
walling, with three similar single light windows, plus stepped
buttresses between and plain parapets over a coved cornice.
Tower to west of gateway is similar to eastern one, but larger
and with an embattled corner turret to the south-east corner.
Beyond to west there is more walling with the main face into the
courtyard, unlike the eastern wall. This has a depressed
pointed arch to centre with stepped buttresses to either side
and beyond to either side, four-centred arched doors with
incised spandrels and returned hoodmoulds. Plain parapets with
ridgeback copings over.
