18/66 Gate, gate piers
- and flanking walls
approx. 78 metres
to south-west of
Church of Saint


Gate, gate piers and flanking walls. Mid-C18. Pair of painted ashlar
piers, each with moulded plinth, raised and fielded panels, moulded
cornice and large globe finial. Right-hand pier with painted inscription:
wrought-iron gate with dogbars and dograil, and curved braces. Roughly
dressed red and grey sandstone flanking walls. Each approximately
35 metres long and half a metre high, curving out towards square end
piers with pyramidal caps. Chamfered coping with globe finials at
intervals (some missing at time of survey - January 1986), and ramped
up at each end. Right-hand end pier incorporates largely illegible
inscribed stone: "This .......". The left-hand pier incorporates a
late C19 post box. The wall incorporates fragments of dressed and
carved medieval masonry, probably reused from the church of Saint Bartholomew
(q.v.) when it was altered and enlarged in the mid-C18. The walls
appear to have been built in two sections, probably the short sections
first-followed by the straight lengths (see straight joints).
