Churchyard

The churchyard, approximately triangular in shape, with the church offset to the north, is still in use. Its boundary walls are mainly brick but near the west end entrance the coping stones appear to be made up of recycled stone from a previous building; perhaps from parts of the church that were replaced during the building work initiated in the late 15th century by Sir Thomas Molyneux.

Grave-markers are concentrated to the south of the church in the largest area of the churchyard. It appears that the earliest headstones date from the 18th century, but most of the older stones are much weathered and difficult to read.
