18/66 Gate, gate piers - and flanking walls approx. 78 metres to south-west of Church of Saint Bartholomew

GV II

Gate, gate piers and flanking walls. Mid-C18. Pair of painted ashlar piers, each with moulded plinth, raised and fielded panels, moulded cornice and large globe finial. Right-hand pier with painted inscription: "WAYFARERS/WELCOME/FROM AN/OPEN ROAD/TO AN/OPEN CHURCH". Late C19 wrought-iron gate with dogbars and dograil, and curved braces. Roughly dressed red and grey sandstone flanking walls. Each approximately 35 metres long and half a metre high, curving out towards square end piers with pyramidal caps. Chamfered coping with globe finials at intervals (some missing at time of survey - January 1986), and ramped up at each end. Right-hand end pier incorporates largely illegible inscribed stone: "This .......". The left-hand pier incorporates a late C19 post box. The wall incorporates fragments of dressed and carved medieval masonry, probably reused from the church of Saint Bartholomew (q.v.) when it was altered and enlarged in the mid-C18. The walls appear to have been built in two sections, probably the short sections first-followed by the straight lengths (see straight joints).
