5/124 Lychgate to St Michael's Church
Lychgate. Late C19. Rusticated grey limestone rubble with red sandstone dressings,
slate roof, timber gable ends, iron gates. Gothic Revival. Rusticated grey
limestone walls support an arched brace roof springing from a timber wall plate which
projects beyond the walls on timber struts pierced with trefoils. The roof has
crested ridge tiles, small gablets on either side of the ridge and timber
Perpendicular traceried gable ends, the cusping below the tracery replaced with a
straight piece of timber. A pair of good cast and wrought iron gates have fleur de
lis finials above the dograil, a middle rail decorated with quartrefoils and cusped
panels below the toprail with fleur de lis finials and larger wrought iron scrolled
finials in the centre and to left and right. Smaller pedestrian gates to left and
right of the lych gate are hung from castellated gate piers of a rather lighthearted
design. The left and right gates are plainer than the centre gate but have twisted
wrought iron finials.
An impressive design with good ironwork.
