3/13 Lychgate and adjoining - boundary walls on east side of churchyard


Lychgate and adjoining boundary wall including a kissing gate. Late C19. The lychgate is built of red conglomerate ashlar with Bathstone corbels and is partly oak-framed; roof of scallop-shaped red tiles with red crested and pierced ridge tiles. The adjoining walls are of Torquay limestone random rubble with red conglomerate ashlar coping and quoins.

The lychgate has a gable-ended roof supported on 4-stone corner posts. They are connected each side by low walls with open framing above. It contains double-gates.

It is flanked each side by low churchyard boundary walls and that to right contains a kissing gate.

The front and rear faces have the ashlar corner posts with chamfered plinth surmounted by pairs of fluted Bathstone corbels. The end trusses are arch-braced and the space above the collar contains an open quatrefoil containing a plaque with a carved fleur-de-lys. The collar is inscribed 'sic vas non vobis'. The sides contain square-headed windows containing Gothic tracery; 2-light windows flanking a lancet. The underside of the 2-bay roof is boarded with a central simple A-frame truss. The gates are panelled below the lock-bar and open above. The strap hinges are bolted on. The kissing gate is similar.
