volcanic stone with rusticated volcanic ashlar coping; wrought-iron gates.
Retaining wall forming south-east boundary wall of churchyard extending from

(to south porch) and parson's gate (between Parsonage q.v. and priest's door) with
rounded corner at end and secondary churchyard gate in return. The weathered
coping includes a series of holes in top made for now removed iron railing. Main
gate has flanking piers with simple geometric patterns and remains of bifurcated
broken scroll heads, a segmental arched overthrough with scrolls and lantern frame
and double gates in which the outer stiles have acorn finials, the railings have
