16/14 Wall and Gates alongside
road at Parish Church of
St James and School House
Wall and gates. 1860-61 presumably by G E Pritchett (1824-1912),
architect for church, school and school house. Long flint wall
with frequent red brick piers, red brick base course and
chamfered coping. Uncoursed, knapped flint. Limestone block set
in head of each pier has short cast iron finial in form of a
cusped spearhead with raised flower on each face. These support
a continuous square wrought iron rail twisted between supports,
and terminating in a 4-hooked grapnel where coping begins to ramp
up to each gate opening. Limestone projecting bottom block and
quoins at each gate opening. Timber openwork gates with heavy
cast iron hinges and cast iron capping with horizontal iron rail
over capping. Idiosyncratic use of varied materials consistent
with school, house and church. An interesting design by
Pritchett, unusual and different from original proposal shown in
perspective. (WEA II (1967) 28: Pevsner (1977) 196).
