Description: The graveyard is located in undulating pastureland. It is marked on the 1st edition OS map from 1837 as 'Grave Yard'. There is a site of a castle close by to the SW. It is marked on the later OS 25 inch map (1897-1913) as 'burial ground'. There is only one visible grave marker, however the graveyard is heavily overgrown and it is possible that more survive in the undergrowth.
 
Appraisal: The site is of archaeological interest. There are no upstanding church remains. The site is derelict with only one visible grave marker.
