Cemetery Lodges, gate-

wall linking them all.
Two cemetery chapels, linking wall and gateway. 1860-1 by Perkins and Backhouse
of Leeds. Rock-faced stone, with ashlar dressings. Welsh slate roofs. Lodge
to left single-storey. Lodge to right 2-storey. Gothic style. The lodge to

has arched head and hoodmould with foliage stops. The other main sides have
cusped, spherical triangle windows with alternately coloured voussoirs. Small
buttresses to the remaining sides. Pyramidal roof with bands of fishscale
slating. The lodge to the right is of 4 bays, marked by low buttresses, and
the left part is octagonal in plan. Paired and single lancet windows, the pair
to the left with square hoodmould with foliage stops. The 1st floor of the
2nd bay has taller, narrower paired lancets which rise above the eaves in a
gabled dormer with finial and circle in apex. Moulded gutter brackets. Bands
of fishscale slating to roof which is pyramidal over the left part. The cemetery
front has a central pent porch with pointed-arched doorway. Flat-roofed addition
to left of this in keeping. The left return of the octagonal part is gabled
and has paired lancet windows.

The lodges are linked by a low wall plinth, ashlar coping and simple iron rail-
ings with round bars which have decorative finials. Tall central, buttresses,
arched gateway with coping, kneelers, footstones and iron finials. In apex is a
cinquefoil and a ribbon with date AD 1861. Wrought-iron gates of simple,
elegant design (the right gate is incomplete).
