ST5445 ST CUTHBERT STREET 662-1/7/252 (North side) Walls enclosing churchyard of St Cuthbert

GV II

Churchyard boundary walling. Various dates, but most apparently early C19. Random rubble local stone, with ashlar copings and gate piers. On north side, against the The Old Almshouse, Chamberlain Street (qv), average 1m high, with pitched coping, gate in north-east corner having square ashlar gate piers with plinths, moulded shallow bell-hip tops, and cast-iron gateposts and gates with spear rails and curved braces. East wall has flatter rounded coping, averaging 1m high, curving inwards towards south-east corner, with opening on corner with plain rectangular piers to same height as wall. Return along south side to match, with gateway opposite south porch and piers matching north-east corner but taller, with a pair of cast-iron gates having ornamental cross finials and other decorations. The west wall forms the boundary with sundry adjoining properties, and breaks westward about mid length-at this point a stone lean-to building of C19 date, possibly a former mortuary chapel, this wall averages 2.5m height. Further north wall, about 2.5m height, with gateway in centre, along boundary with Chamberlain Street back to the Almshouses.
