Set in granite ashlar plinth. Stone rubble wall to right (west) acts as boundary wall to burial ground and parts of this wall are all that remain of the 1692 meetinghouse which was enlarged in 1718, but became unsafe and was replaced by the existing chapel in 1802. The wall is approximately 2i metres high. The lamp standard to the left (east) is cast iron with panelled pedestal, tapered fluted shaft and moulded and fluted ladder bars and with wrought iron lamp-holder on top.
