2. Small burial ground probably dating from early C19. A rectangular grassed area following the steeply-sloping hillside above Darby Road end enclosed by brick walls. Small, plain headstones are now ranged against each of the longer side walls. These have much-weathered inscriptions and formerly marked the graves of many prominent Quakers including members of the Darby family. A Quaker meeting house stood on a site close by and Abraham Darby III provided in his will for the upkeep of both the meeting house and Burial Ground.
