SO8932 CHURCH STREET, Abbey Precincts 859-1/6/377 (East side) 04/03/52 Churchyard gates (Formerly Listed as: ABBEY PRECINCTS Churchyard Gates NW of Abbey)

GV II*

Entrance gates to path from Abbey N porch. Probably 1750, restored 1959. Attributed to William Edney, and erected by Lord Gage. Wrought iron. Fine pair of gates with overthrow set to ornamental open square-section piers and with short side panels. The cambered overthrow carries a painted shield of arms above an interlaced monogram, and a plaque with a head in low relief. Piers carry urn finials, and swept-down supporters are stopped to standards with finials. Dyde (1798) records that "In this year (1750) the church walk ws paved by subscription. The iron gates at the entrance into the church (viz. the north porch) were given by Lord Gage.... Those next the street, and the pallisadoes, were given by Wm. Dowdeswell Esq." In the great restoration of the later C19 the churchyard level was lowered, to reduce dampness in the aisle wall, and at this time the Gage gates were moved to their present position. The Dowdeswell gates are not accounted for. (Dyde W: History and Antiquities of Tewkesbury: Tewkesbury: 1790-).
