Entrance piers in
grounds of
Kingerby Manor


Pair of entrance piers, formerly cross base and shaft, and 4
pinnacles set out in a line; 1451, late C18. Ashlar; on the
right hand side is a square base which is inscribed "CON: AD
1451" on the left hand face, with a Chirho symbol and omega on
the front face, and with a fleury cross in a circle and "Dei" and
"Ora" on the right hand face. On top of the base is a weathered
cross shaft. To the right of this pier are 4 C15 crocketed
pinnacles set in a line in the ground. The left hand entrance
pier is also a square C15 base on which has been set a decorative
stone pine cone of late C18 date. The C15 fragments came from
PONS EPISCOPI, the former medieval Bishops Bridge over the River
Ancholme about 2 miles west of Kingerby. They are likely to
have been moved to their present position, where they form an
entrance opposite the church gates, during C19.
