Early C18 gabled lychgate; of rubble with renewed, slated roof. Oak lintels over plain E and W openings, the former wider; pegged oak frame and C20 gates to W side. At ground level on the S face, a stone inscribed with date 1728 and (churchwardens) initials: KR, TP, TR.

At the SW corner a small store, construction as before; plain boarded door on churchyard side.
