4/78 St Mary's Church Steps
and forecourt wall

Circa 1850. The church stands higher than the medieval building, and the position of
the former nave is marked by a series of steps, from the street to the west door,
flanked by forecourt walls. Piers remain on either side of the entrance and at the
north end; stone, with gables, chamfered corners and stepped moulding to the base.
The walling has a flint base, the upper part being of stonework, pierced with a
regular series of lancet openings, and a weathering cap, which steps upward to meet
the piers. The easternmost pier is now missing.
