which has a gate with three long lower cusped panels and an open balustraded
upper panel; (two of the turned balusters have been replaced by stick balusters).
The south return incorporates a public telephone box in the angle added in the
mid-C20 which has a doorway with a moulded stone ashlar architrave and a half-
glazed door. The wall forms a prominent feature at the centre of the village
and is situated opposite the churchyard of the Church of St Faith (qv). (Newton,
