Built in the C18 or early C19 and shown on the 1838 Tithe map at the SE corner of the churchyard. The churchyard was extended E when the church was rebuilt in 1848-9, at which time an extension of the rubble stone boundary wall was built abutting the E side of the pound. The entrance to the pound is an alteration of the mid or late C19.
