Curtain wall with churchyard wall attached at right angles to western tower of the central gateway. The churchyard wall is low with tapering plinth and ridgeback copings. To northern end there are pair of plain stone piers, also with ridgeback copings, and a flight of steps up into the churchyard. Between the piers are a pair of C18 wrought iron gate with scrolled centre panels. The curtain wall has a wide double chamfered pointed arch into the courtyard to centre with machicolated embattled parapets over. To east side there is a two storey tower, also with embattled parapets, which has a pointed Y-tracery window with hoodmould to ground floor and similar smaller, untraceried window above. Beyond to east there is a recessed section of walling, with three similar single light windows, plus stepped buttresses between and plain parapets over a coved cornice. Tower to west of gateway is similar to eastern one, but larger and with an embattled corner turret to the south-east corner.
