GREAT TEW NEW ROAD SP3928 (East side) 12/40 Churchyard gateway approx. 27/08/56 20m. E of The Vicarage (Formerly listed as Gateway leading to Churchyard) GV II Gateway with gate. Early/mid C17; mid C19 gate. Limestone ashlar with cast-iron gate. Gateway is formed from re-used piers which have, on the front, vermiculated banding and break forward to contain shell-headed recesses below oval niches. The head consists of inverted festoons of fruit flanking a double-stepped keyblock; a moulded coping extends over the piers. The rear of the doorway has an angle roll. Probably originally a much wider gateway in the grounds of Great Tew House (q.v.). (V.C.H.: Oxfordshire.
