History

The wall incorporates material from the older church on the site but the entrances date from the rebuilding of the church in 1860 and are shown on the 1888 Ordnance Survey (which does not show the fold).

Exterior

The churchyard wall is approximately round in plan, of rubble stone up to 2m high, with cock-and-hen coping. Towards the S end of the churchyard it acts as a retaining wall. The main entrance is the lychgate on the W side. It is of rubble stone with dressed quoins, an elliptical arch of roughcast over brick, and ivy-clad gabled slate roof. It has double wrought-iron gates. Similar gates are to the NW entrance. The fold at the S end is circular with a full-height opening in the S side. Set into the wall is a Victorian letter box, cast by WT Allen & Co of London, presented by the Post Office in 1987.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a well-detailed lychgate and for group value with the church.
