2/80 Lychgate to Church of the
- Holy Cross
Lychgate. Circa late C17 with C20 alterations. Stone rubble with a slate roof,
gabled at ends ; timber coffin gate.
A wide gateway with thick stone rubble gable end walls supporting the roof structure
and open way through underneath. The 2 leaves of the gate each have 3 fielded panels
and are fixed to either side of a large turned timber post which turns on an iron bar
fixed to an ovolo-moulded axial beam at the top and a socket stone in the ground. The
post is square on section at the base with ovolo-moulded corners and turned above
with collar mouldings. Sections of stout timber fencing, probably C20 are fixed
between the gate and stone walling.
An unusually early lychgate for the region.
