Listing Text


1685-1/8/225 (East side)
Walls and railings around the Church
of St Thomas


4 gate piers and gates within a churchyard wall. 1840-41. By
Edmund Sharpe. Sandstone ashlar and cast iron.
The piers, standing 5 steps above the pavement within a
recessed entrance to which the walls curve back in quadrants,
are octagonal and similar in form to the turrets on the west
front of the church. Each face has a shafted lancet with a
continuous hoodmould under a band of dogtooth ornament which
supports a pyramidal spirelet with a florid finial. On the 2
centre piers these finials have been replaced by lamps, broken
at the time of survey. The cast-iron gates, which are double
in the centre and single at the sides, are decorated, top and
bottom, with a row of trefoils and have a cresting of little
finials. The railings on the walls, which have roll-topped
saddlebacked copings, have simple spearheads.
