GV II

Gate-piers, overthrow, flanking walls, steps and retaining walls. Circa 1885.
Gate-piers are sandstone ashlar, square section with chamfered corners and
battered front faces; cappings have diminutive Lombard friezes and chamfered
upper sides. Overthrow is of twisted wrought iron rising to ornate wrought-
iron lantern with sides tapering towards base and topped by a cross. Flanking
walls extending to north and south are of finely coursed square sandstone with
ridged tile-copings. Steps are of sandstone in four separate groups between
the gate-piers and the east entrance of the Church of St Catherine (qv).
Retaining walls to north and south sides of steps are aligned east/west and
of finely coursed rock-faced squared sandstone. The gate-piers, overthrow,
flanking walls, steps and retaining walls together form the carefully designed
main approach and framed composition to the Church of St Catherine (qv).
