The lych gate has dwarf walls of snecked stone supporting open timber-framed sides of 2 arched bays.

The slate roof has cusped bargeboards. In the centre are double wooden gates.
The lych gate is within a semi-circular recess to the W boundary wall of the churchyard. The attached walls define the W and S sides of the chuchyard, and are of rubble stone with saddleback coping.
Listed as a well-detailed lych gate and for the important contribution of lych gate and walls to the setting of the church.
