Listing Text

TQ 7468 SW
9/240 Wall with gates
enclosing churchyard
of St Margaret's
Parish Church, with
headstones attached.


Wall enclosing St Margaret's Churchyard to E, S and W. Various
dates, mainly early and mid. C19. Random rubble ragstone, clunch
and flint with brick above (to E), all brick (with brick piers)
to W, and including (at NE end) 2 square-section brick piers
supporting overthrow with iron double gates. The Lychgate (brick
piers and Kent-tile hipped roof with side benches) appears to
date from c.1920. The section bounding the W side acts as a
retaining wall and is a prominent feature overlooking an area of
public open space.
