Lychgate and attached walls. c1916, Dec style lychgate and C19
walls. Ashlar and timber with steeply pitched graduated stone
slate, half hipped roof, plus ornately carved bargeboards and
pendants. Lychgate has stone plinth with four large octagonal
timber corner posts, each with a frieze of blind quatrefoils to
top, supporting large moulded brackets for the eaves. To the
centre there are three moulded four-centred arches, with pierced
spandrels, supporting the roof, which are in turn supported by
piers resting on the plinth, each of which has a small attached
nookshaft actually carrying the arch. The outer edges of the
plinths have stone walls on, creating a bench-like arrangement.
These carry an arcade of four-centred arches with pierced
quatrefoils over. There are similar arches and quatrefoils
between the corner piers and those supporting the roof. The
central tie beam has inscribed on it 'In memory of James
Shuttleworth Holden, Rector 1869-1916. Erected by his friends
and parishioners'. Above there is a simple collared roof and in
each gable there is a pierced timber screen. Attached to either
side there are random rubble walls which enclose the churchyard.
