Notes: This very old site would seem to have once been circular. The church's nave, chancel and porch were rebuilt in 1706, a possible planting date of the two fine yews that grow 5 metres apart at the west end, marked A and B on the plan. A vicarage was built on the east side of the churchyard in Victorian times and the hedge, shown as a red line, was presumably planted at the same time.
