Gate piers, gates and boundary wall
to churchyard of Church of St Mary


Gatepiers, gates and boundary wall. Probably c.1840.
Sandstone. The gatepiers are square in section and approx. 3
metres high, with panelled sides and plain caps with shallow
pyramidal tops. The low boundary wall on the east and south
sides of the churchyard is of 2 courses of large sandstone
blocks with chamfered coping, and has 7 widely spaced piers on
the east side and 5 on the south, all matching the gatepiers.
The gates are ramped and have spear-headed bar railings;
matching railings on the wall survive in the northernmost
section only (the others replaced with C20 railings). Included
for group value.
