Former burial ground. Datestone 1658. Walled enclosure in drystone limestone,
some weathered stone coping to west and south, some large slabs to north; varied
heights but from 1 m to 1.5 m high from within enclosure which is about
17 x 10 m. On the west,side is a large stone stile slab set in to the wall, the
back inscribed MM-708 (presumably 1708), front, approached by 3 concrete block
stops 2 m wide and carrying a cast iron plaque Friends Burial Ground 1658. The
enclosure includes a series of 6 ledger slabs and 2 coffin stones, all with
evidences of inscriptions, but not now eligible. A very valuable survival, well
away from normal access in the area. (Hyett, F A, Glimpses of the History of
