SOURCE - (visit link)

The entrance to the churchyard at the south east is under a cottage dated to around 1600 - the original churchyard entrance being further west. It consists of a two storeyed, L-shaped building with a pitched roof, which forms a quasi lychgate. The upper north and south walls have some timber framing. The lower portions are of stone.
It is not certain whether the cottage was built with a cart house below, from which the back wall was removed - or whether an entire ground floor was taken away.
Year: 1700
