10/230 Churchyard walls on south and east
- sided including south gate of the
Church of St Mary

Churchyard walls and gate. Probably 1845, contemporary with the Church rebuild;
parts may be older. Snecked volcanic stone with ashlar coping. The churchyard is
built up as a terrace above The square. The walls revet the terrace. On the south-
east corner the wall follows the sinuous course of the road as it returns from the
south side to the east side. South gate, at the base of a flight of granite steps,
has square section piers of lightly rusticated ashlar and has granite pyramid caps.
Probably late C19 wrought iron gates richly ornamented with scrolls.
