Notes

Priory and graveyard wall, 13th and 18th century respectivly. Mixed squared and coursed calciferous and red sandstone rubble (from the nearby Roman Wall). Low wall, probably reduced in height, forming the north wall of the former priory. Footpath entrance with chamfered surround is probably a later insertion. The later graveyard wall adjoins the north transept and built of materials from the demolished priory. Listed and scheduled.
