SX874510 CHURCH CLOSE
673-1/8/65 Walls around churchyard of the
Church of St Saviour
Churchyard walls. Late C13 and C14 origins with several
repairs since. Local stone rubble with rubble weathered
coping. The 3 gateways are all probably C19. The east and west
gates have plain square-section rubble gate piers, the former
with low pyramid caps, the latter with flat caps. The northern
gate piers are also square-section with low pyramid caps but
are built of lightly-rusticated blocks of limestone ashlar.
All flank C20 iron gates.
The churchyard walls make an important contribution to the
group of listed buildings in the vicinity of the Church of St
Saviour (qv). Although the existing walls are probably mostly
of C18 and C19 date, parts are probably earlier. The medieval
churchyard was on the riverside and, up until 1584, ships
would be moored to the churchyard walls.
