The way in which roadways sink and churchyards rise can be easily explained by the natural forces of erosion and deposition. Less easy to explain is the remarkably fine nature of the stonework,
the size of some stones and their variety. Do they represent a period of prosperity in the village when it was decided to make a better churchyard wall than anyone else in the area or was it about recycling
 stones from the earlier church as it was rebuilt during the middle ages? Careful recording and analysis of the stone should tell us much.
