Churchyard occupying ancient site, now enclosed on 3 sides by streets and by Town Hall at E; contains present parish church at W and tower
and fragments of previous buildings - listed separately; enclosure walls rubble and ashlar, partly iron-railed, partly re-formed at W as part of J J Burnet's rebuild of parish church 1900-2; Kirk Port to Main Street dated 1663 is almost identical to main entrance at Kinneil House (1667) - early example in Scotland of a classical lugged architrave; unusually, jambs are stepped outwards and so set further apart below door-head; segmental pediment, consoled to front and sides as at Kinneil; sundial set above is dated 1679, by James Thompson; within gateway are steps flanked by pair identical offertory stone shelters one with 1761 date inscribed in pedimented gable; headstones within churchyard mostly 18th and 19th centuries. Gateways to Queen Street (ie W) by Burnet.
