TQ3004NE DYKE ROAD 577-1/32/214 (West side) Burial vaults and tomb in western part of St Nicholas' graveyard

GV II

Burial vaults, flanked by steps to east and west, and forming a terrace on the north side of the graveyard. c1840. By Amon Henry Wilds. Random rubble and stucco. A range of vaults fronted to the south by 14 bays designed in a Tudor-Gothic style as if they were entrances to the vaults: in fact the south walls are blank, and faced in stucco with Tudor-arched 'entrances' having studded 'doors' and figural labels now mostly defaced, except that the second door from the west is of wood, and real; buttresses between each bay with 3 offsets terminating in pinnacles; parapet decorated with quatrefoil decoration. The eastern steps are flanked by a pair of octagonal piers with panels of terracotta or Coade stone decorated with mouchettes, and by a stuccoed wall; the western steps have a cobbled wall, possibly a replacement. Tomb of Sir Richard Phillips. About one metre south-west of the entrance to the cemetery. c1845. Stone table tomb with base, moulded plinth, and recessed centre with inscribed panel; railings missing.
