6/69 Churchyard Walls,
Mounting Block, and
Gate-Posts to West
and South West of
Church of St Peter


Churchyard walls, mounting block, gates and gate-posts. The wall and
mounting blocks are probably C18; the gate-posts and gates are circa mid
C19. High slate rubble walls with pitched slate copping, the walls retain
the churchyard which is at a much higher level than the road outside. The
small mounting block on the outer west side of the wall is also slate
rubble with 3 steps each with slate treads, the slate of the lower tread is
missing. The gateway at the west end of the churchyard has mid C19 granite
monolithic gate-posts with pyramided tops and cast-iron gates with fleur-
de-lis finials to the shafts. The lock plates are inscribed - "Lidstone,
Kingsbridge". The lantern overthrow is probably late C19 or C20.
