6/60 Lychgate to church of St.
John the Baptist


Lychgate to church of St. John the Baptist. 1867. Probably by Charles Kirk
of Sleaford for Joseph Dent of Ribston Hall (q.v.). Pink sandstone and
ashlar, slate roof. Square plan, open sided, in Gothic style with
double-chamfered arch to each side and diagonal buttresses. Ashlar coping
to gables, steeply-pitched roof. Interior: stone bench on north side,
groined vault. Gate: wrought iron, single leaf approximately 1.2 metres
high. Pointed bars, short dog-bars, bands of scroll ornament. The church
(q.v.) was rebuilt in 1867 and the lychgate is built against the mound of
the old church. Its design therefore allows for passage through the south
and west sides of the structure instead of the usual direct route through
south and north.
