Mortuary. Probably 1869, and if so designed by Henry Hall. Local stone coursed rubble, ashlar dressings; plain clay
tile roof with bands of fish scale tiles, gabled on all four faces. Square plan, single storey. West elevation has
4-centre arch, posibly C18, under square label, flanked by two C15 statue niches with canopies; to gable over a
circular window and also a sculpted head. South wall has a window in a C12 style and circular window in gable, the
latter seems a re-use: similar circular window to East gable, and one of a different pattern in North gable. This
building was formed from materials and fragments of the old nave, demolished 1867-69. (E.D.B Guide to the Parish Church
of Milborne Port, 1971).
