812/1/10007 Railings, gates and gatepiers
to Wirksworth Baptist Cemetery
Entrance walls, railings, gates and gatepiers to Baptist cemetery. Mid C19. Low, curved stone walls, with steeply chamfered, dressed copings surmounted by plain pointed railings. Gate piers, square on plan, are gritstone monoliths, with simple moulded pyramidal caps and ball finials. The piers carry railed gates, with ramped upper horizontal rails, and bobbin finials to the hanging bars, and to the railings next to the meeting bars. Terminal piers at outer ends of walls of different heights to reflect sloping site. The walls, railings, gates and gatepiers define the frontage of the Baptist cemetery, and form an important, detached element of the setting of the cemetery chapel (q.v.).
