GV II

Wall enclosing graveyard, and as boundary to road to E. Probably 1754, but return at S end said to be C20 replacement. Portland ashlar. A long roughly rectangular enclosure with the church (qv) set very close to the Lych Gate (qv) centred on the E side. A series of long stepped panels, following changes in ground line, on square plinth and with weathered oversailing coping; centred to return walls at N and S ends an opening, withour gates, with square piers to heavy pyramidal cappings at c 1.75m. The wall, generally c 1.6m high, completely encloses this large graveyard which contains large numbers of monuments in Portland stone, from the mid-C18 to the present day. This comprises an unusally complete historical record of the Island families through that time.
