8/67 Boundary Wall south
of The Old Rectory.
Boundary wall. C17 and C19. Red brick boundary wall in C17 brick laid in
Flemish bond with half round coping. Central semi-circular C19 brick wayside
pulpit built by the Rev. William Haslam (rector 1863-71). Haslam was a notable
Evangelical preacher who built the pulpit in order to address the large crowds
which assembled in the meadow opposite to hear him, the parish church being
inadequate to contain the large numbers attracted to his services. Included
for group value . and for historical interest of the way-
side pulpit which is a rare survival.
