The gateway was probably built in the C18 and reroofed later.


The lychgate is built with rubble stonework, with a roof of small irregular sized and grouted slates. Approximately square in plan, with the side walls returning as nibs to square-headed openings at front and back, each with unshaped stone lintels, and internal timber lintels supporting the purlins. A timber bench is set either side. The single pitched roof has exposed fully torched rafters on the single tier of purlins. The outer opening has a pair of C19 timber gates.

Reasons for Listing
