SS4526 CHURCH WALK 842-1/6/76 (South side) 19/03/73 St Mary's Churchyard: 4 walls incl gates and railings on N and S sides (Formerly Listed as: Wall of churchyard of St Mary's Church)


Stone-rubble boudary-wall. Probably 1865. Most of it has a chamfered granite coping with the marks of former railings on top. Iron railings survive on north side, adjoining flight of steps; uprights with elaborated spear-heads, including twisted standards supported on the inside by twisted brackets. On south side is a pair of iron gates with more delicate spear-heads to the uprights; above it an arch of scrollwork, probably intended for a lampholder, supported by standards matching those on the north side. The gate may not be in its original position; a nearby granite plaque records the construction of this entrance to the churchyard in 1914. On the east side the wall has no granite coping. Instead the north half has a flat stone coping which sweeps upwards to a flat-topped pier near the north end. (Granville R: The History of Bideford: 1883-: P.100; Goaman M: Old Bideford and District: Bristol: 1968-: P.37).
