Walled garden, roughly square in plan, has rubble walls 2-3 metres high with flat copings, except on the west, bordering the churchyard, where the coping is triangular with an apex roll; blocked doorways to south and east have brick segmental arches; the top half of the inner face is lined with brick. The walls form a complete circuit except for approximately 10 metres of the south wall adjoining the gates, which have been lowered.
