4/88 Gatepiers, railings, steps and walls to graveyard of St. Michael and 20.4.77 All Angels

G.V. II

Gatepiers, railings, steps and graveyard walls. Gatepiers: probably 1815: 2 pairs which are rusticated ashlar, have bases and cornices, one of which is terminated in acorn finials. The iron railings which adjoin the west gateposts are terminated in a similar pier. The gates are in decorative ironwork. The stone steps to the west have a right-angled flight: the parapet walls are in squared rubble and 2 of the coping stones bear the dates 1857 and 1734. The walls of the graveyard are of squared rubble and hammer- dressed stone and date largely form the C18. Datestones incorporated in the wall include TBM 1769, 1804, 1815 and 1823. The round-topped coping stones are numbered 1-33 consecutively on the west and east sides and A-Z on the north defining the graveyard plot layout. A weathered buttress supports the wall (which is a retaining wall in parts) at the south-west.
