The churchyard falls naturally into two parts. To the north it is a long wedge shape, falling steeply downhill beside Trent Lane. To the south it is rectangular with a main axis east to west, with a lychgate erected by Arthur Richardson JP in March 1936 in memory of his wife and mother. In the 1960s the sunken centre of the south side was levelled and the scattered gravestones reset in rows. There are plentiful trees, particularly to the north.
