SJ4065 GROSVENOR ROAD 1932-1/8/146 (East side) Gates and gate piers to old (north) part of Overleigh Cemetery

GV II

Gates and gate piers, with railings between the piers, to the original entrance to cemetery. 1848-50. By TM Penson. Rock-faced sandstone and cast-iron : pair of vehicular gates; piers; pedestrian gate to each side; piers; railings on stone plinths; terminal piers. The gates have bottom rail, dogbars; lock-rail; alternate bars rising through top-rail; fleur-de-lys caps to all bars; square piers with moulded plinths, blank shields to front and rear, near top; gabled capstones. The railings of the screen to each side of gates have fleur-de-lys heads. The gateway and the footbridge in the cemetery, Overleigh Road (qv), are the only remaining complete elements of TM Penson's design for the cemetery, but the picturesque layout with sandstone outcrops and generous planting survive. For tombs and cenotaphs of note and west chapel (qv) see Overleigh Road.
