Lychgate for St Bartholomew's Church (see TQ2742 : St Bartholomew's Church, Horley). The lychgate dates from 1903, built by Arthur Jennings, and commemorates those killed in the Boer War - a carved inscription on the south side reads "To the glory of God and in memory of our fellow parishioners who fell in the South African War 1899-1902", with their names (A W Carling, C C Sargent, and J T Turnbull) inscribed on both sides of the lychgate, along with those of the Vicar and Churchwardens at the time (Rev H T Lewis, B W Parsons and F T Glover). It is grade Ic listed.

In the background can be seen the spire of the church.
