In 1815 an Act of Vestry resolved that the Burial Ground "be enclosed in"; previously there seems to have been a fence.


Walls of stone rubble with very rough coping on south and south-east sides. On North-west side, the churchyard wall also comprises the wall to the former fives court to Cowbridge Grammar School; this wall becomes very high at North-east end of court where it continues Northwards as far as end pier and railings at Church Street churchyard entrance. On south-west side, the churchyard wall also comprises the rear wall of the late C19 Cowbridge Grammar School wing.
