The churchyard was unusually large for a country church and partially given over to a garden. It is roughly square in shape, bordering roads to the south and east, with the church heavily offset in the south-east corner.

The site is bounded by a wall but this was formerly a fence which seems to have required much repair being reported almost annually from 1601.

In 1618 Samuel Hartop was accused of keeping pigs in the churchyard.

The retaining wall along the lane contains a square carved stone which has possible early attributes.
