Listing Text


873-1/29/636 (West side)
Group of monuments adjacent to the
south porch, Church of All Saints


Group of 31 headstones used as a retaining wall. Portland
stone. C17, C18 and C19. The series of monuments has been set,
some vertically, and some on their sides, to form a continuous
low wall, finishing to a common level at the top. They extend
westwards from the SW corner of the S porch, to the churchyard
path entry at the N end of the Old Rectory (qv). Several of
the stones have sunk panels, with lettering in capitals, of
the C17, and one includes a date of 1601. The largest stone
extends approx 2m x 1m, but others are small units.
Although removed from their original locations in the
churchyard, these monuments, including some of the earliest in
date, are of historical importance to the church and the
former village.
