PORTLAND

SY67SE WESTON ROAD, Easton
969-1/1/85 (West side)
Church of St George, lych gate

GV II

Lych gate, memorial to Rebecca Newman Stone, died 1934.
Portland ashlar, slate roof. A hipped slate roof with lead
ridge and decorative wrought iron cross is carried on two deep
lintels on stone cheeks formed from paired square piers linked
by recessed segmental-arched openings above stone panels. The
box eaves also bears on paired moulded wood brackets to E and
W. Coffered wood ceiling. The lintel to the E, or entry side
inscribed 'To the Glory of God', that to the W with 'A Shelter
for those who mourn'. The stone panel on the S side of the
entry records that the gate is a memorial to Rebecca Newman
Stone, who died in 1934, and that to the N, undated, 'Also
erected in memory of Edward and Ann Comben Stone'. The
churchyard wall (qv) is swept up at its junction with the
lych, and has scrolled supporters. There are no gates (June
1991). This is a very seemly and appropriate entry to a
splendid churchyard and church. Included for group value.
