SJ 5206-5306
11/37 Retaining wall, gate
- and gatepiers to All Saints
Churchyard retaining wall, gate and gatepiers. Probably C18 and
mid-to late C19. Roughly squared and coursed red and grey sandstone
with some brick patching; C19 north wall of squared and coursed red
sandstone with coping, and C19 west wall of uncoursed red sandstone
with curved grey sandstone coping. Irregular oval plan; curved wall
to south and east and straight walls to north and west. Raking
buttresses to south; mid-C19 gateway to east consisting of chamfered
square sandstone piers with pyramidal caps, cast and wrought iron
gate with spearheaded railings and dogbars, dograils and curved
brace, and 7 stone steps up with wrought iron railings. The churchyard
retaining wall defines the raised circular churchyard in its curved part
to south and east; the straight north and west walls probably reflect
C19 alterations to the boundary. A church and a priest at Berrington
are recorded in the Domesday Book but there is nothing evident in the
present fabric earlier than the C13. D.H.S. Cranage; An Architectural
Account of the Churches of Shropshire, Vol. 6, p p. 463-9, B.O.E. p. 73.
