BERRINGTON C.P. BERRINGTON SJ 5206-5306 11/37 Retaining wall, gate - and gatepiers to All Saints churchyard GV II Churchyard retaining wall, gate and gatepiers. Probably C18 and mid-to late C19. Roughly squared and coursed red and grey sandstone with some brick patching; C19 north wall of squared and coursed red sandstone with coping, and C19 west wall of uncoursed red sandstone with curved grey sandstone coping. Irregular oval plan; curved wall to south and east and straight walls to north and west. Raking buttresses to south; mid-C19 gateway to east consisting of chamfered square sandstone piers with pyramidal caps, cast and wrought iron gate with spearheaded railings and dogbars, dograils and curved brace, and 7 stone steps up with wrought iron railings. The churchyard retaining wall defines the raised circular churchyard in its curved part to south and east; the straight north and west walls probably reflect C19 alterations to the boundary. A church and a priest at Berrington are recorded in the Domesday Book but there is nothing evident in the present fabric earlier than the C13. D.H.S.
