21/09/78 Church of St George, graveyard wall
Wall enclosing graveyard, and as boundary to road to E.
Probably 1754, but return at S end said to be C20 replacement.
Portland ashlar. A long roughly rectangular enclosure with the
church (qv) set very close to the Lych Gate (qv) centred on
the E side. A series of long stepped panels, following changes
in ground line, on square plinth and with weathered
oversailing coping; centred to return walls at N and S ends an
opening, withour gates, with square piers to heavy pyramidal
cappings at c 1.75m. The wall, generally c 1.6m high,
completely encloses this large graveyard which contains large
numbers of monuments in Portland stone, from the mid-C18 to
the present day. This comprises an unusally complete
historical record of the Island families through that time.
