Wall enclosing St Margaret's Churchyard to E, S and W. Various
dates, mainly early and mid. C19. Random rubble ragstone, clunch
and flint with brick above (to E), all brick (with brick piers)
to W, and including (at NE end) 2 square-section brick piers
supporting overthrow with iron double gates. The Lychgate (brick
