Full description

There is a large, low mound in the centre of the graveyard, which might possibly be a barrow (note; the church is displaced toward the north of the graveyard). The NE and SE corners of the churchyard are marked by sarsens amd there are other similar stones near the hall. <1> AP <2> <3> <4>

During site visit in June 2004, sarsens in churchyard no longer visible, although 3 outside hall remain. Local knowledge suggests that sarsens were moved "within last ten years and can now be seen in village hall car park".
