on all 4 sides. 1.0 to 1.5-metre-tall north section with lych-gate in

partly-rebuilt east section has ramp down at north-east corner and gradually
increases in height towards rounded south-east corner. 1.5 to 1.75-metre-
tall south section has long, rounded south-west corner. West section of
similar height has rounded north-west corner.

2. Lych-gate. Dated 1898 on rear tie beam. Oak frame and Welsh slate
roof. Gable-fronted. Arch-braced corner posts. Front tie beam, with raised
