Lychgate. Dated 1906. Perpendicular style. Open work timber frame structure on a low plinth wall of flint and dressed stone ashlar. Cruciform tiled roof with steeply pitched gables to north (towards road), south, east and west. Two bays.

Wooden double gates to the north elevation.
An inscription on the collar facing The Green reads, '1906', and on the tie beam below, 'This is Gods Acre'.
