Churchyard gates, gate piers and
walls to Church of St James


Walls gate piers and gates enclosing the churchyard of
St James' Church. 1821 with some later C19 work. Red sandstone
rubble walls, gate piers with limestone caps and cast-iron and
wrought-iron gates.
Substantial gate piers flanking the path approx 20m from the
west door have stepped shallow pyramidal caps supporting
cast-iron gates approx 2m high. The gates resemble long/short
railings but have interlacing tracery to the central
horizontal bar with spade-head tops and arrow-head tops to the
upper rails; rails are square in section. C20 segmental steel
arches bolted to the top of each gate have pointed spikes.
The wall extends approx 35m to the north, turns east for
approx 25m, turns north again for approx 6m and east again for
approx 6m. In the angle thus formed is the tomb of Thomas Luny
(qv). The wall descends the hill for approx 70m to meet the
north-east angle of the the church. Approx 10m from the north
end are double wrought-iron gates approx 2m high with
square-section long/short rails with heavy arrow heads to
upper and lower rails. The south-east angle of the church is
connected to the west gates by a curved revetment wall
enclosing the south side of the churchyard. It extends approx
110m and approx 27m from the east end is a long/short-railed
gate and steps.
