Description

This monument consists of a collection of medieval stonework set into or in front of a modern wall and surrounded by a metal railing. The stones appear to be mainly tombstones with some pieces of cross shaft and other architectural fragments.

The area to be scheduled is bounded by the iron railing which forms an enclosure around the stones, and which is included in the scheduling. It measures approximately 3m by 6m and is marked in red on the accompanying map.

Statement of Scheduling

This monument is of national importance because it is a fine collection of medieval stonework apparently from the environs of a rural parochial church. It gives a good idea of the variety and quality of the stonework which ornamented a parish church and its graveyard.
