Full Description

GR corrected to above . Old cemetery surrounding the church building with variety of gravemarkers of the latter part of the post medieval period. May have been larger tombs but these have been flattened to the ground other than the Gray building which is now unroofed. A modern extension on the W end, formal with graves in rows. Proposals for an extension to the S of this. Church building demolished to less than 0.5m high. No obvious antiquities, but a small collection of shell in a mole hill to the NE of the church building might indicate that cemetery overlies older beach line - HAW 12/2004
