Description

Grade II. Wrought iron C18 overthrow with lampholder incorporated in C19 wrought iron spear pattern gateway. Low brick and stone piers, partly rendered. All the listed buildings in St Mary's Square on the south side of Parson's Fee form a group with No 1 St Mary's Row and No 6 Pebble Lane (B17).
Watching brief carried out by Oxford Archaeology in July and August 2007 during rebuilding and repairs to SE section of churchyard wall showed that the brick gate pier overlaid the stone slabs of the footpath from St Mary's Row, suggesting that the stone slabs pre-date the construction of the churchyard wall in the 19th century (B22).
