Lychgate and remains
of cross SE of Church
9.2.61 of St Mary

GV II

Lychgate and reused churchyard cross. Probably late C17 or early C18; the
cross is probably medieval. It is an open lychgate with granite ashlar
rectangular end piers with narrow pilaster buttresses on the outer side of
each pier with granite weathering at the top of each buttress. The piers
support a hipped slate roof, the timber structure of which has been much
renewed if not entirely replaced in the late C19. The roof is supported at
the middle of the east side by a slender octagonal granite post which appears
to be a churchyard cross, the arms of the cross having been cut off. Inside
the lychgate is a circa C19 low stone wall with iron railings above and a C20
gate.
