Long Description:
Wrought iron gates with cross design at the lychgate of All Saints' church, Church Lane, Gilmorton.

"There has been a place of worship here since at least 1209, and All Saints’ church is thought to be Saxon in origin. The base of the tower is of 15th century construction; the present building was reconstructed in Victorian times, being re-dedicated in 1861. In 1884 the tower suffered severe storm damage and was restored in 1909. In former times the church was referred to as Old Hallows, and the present Church Lane was known as Old Hallows Lane. The bells were restored by Taylors bell foundry in Loughborough in 2013."
