2/262 Lychgate and Boundary Wall
- on south-west and south
sides of St Pancras Churchyard
GV II

Lychgate and boundary wall. Lychgate probably late C19; boundary wall C16 or C17.
Granite ashlar, except for the main length of the south boundary wall, of which only
the west end is ashlar, the rest being of rubble. Lychgate consists simply of a
roof supported by stone gable-walls; the roof is slated and has raised copings
corbelled out at the front. Trussed rafter roof with pegged joints. The opening
below is sub-divided by a stone wall about it metres high, (possibly coffin-rest),
this having a capstone with moulded edges. Boundary wall, which is also about 1½
metres high, has a flat coping hollow-moulded on the outer edge; the coping
continues along the western half of the south wall, beyond the point where the
ashlar walling ends.
