This, and the wall to the east end, are of snecked sandstone with chamfered freestone capping. The rubblestone wall to the south rises to approx 2m. The double gates at both east corners have scrolls and trefoil heads to the panels and are supported by square ashlar and rubblestone piers with pyramidal heads.
