A pair of high gate piers and associated railings forming the entrance to the
eastern side of the churchyard. C19. Cast iron. Plain, square bases to the
piers, and square shafts pierced on each face with matching Gothic tracery
resembling 2-light window tracery. The enriched ogee capitals have bases with
embattled ornament and spike finials. The railings, which stand on brick
plinths, have thin cylindrical shafts linked by an upper and lower band of
trefoil cusping and surmounted by an ornate cresting. These piers and
railings originally formed part of a design which also included high double
and single gates and 2 more elaborately decorated inner gate piers, of which
only photographs now survive.
