Visited 2009, parking in main street. Entrance into newest area. Canadian CWGC memorials either side of entrance. This area very municipal. Old vicarage now flats being renovated divide this section from the churchyard. At rear of this section an area stretches across back of churchyard, old vicarage area and more modern section. This original cemetery area has some impressive memorials and several redwoods. The area immediately behind vicarage has not been used for burials despite being marked as extension on the SHC map. Tidy overall with mature trees including Yews plus hedges, tarmac and grassy paths. Pedestrian entrance gates off Terrace road and behind church into old section. No laying down but some broken memorials. Church very impressive with massive marble memorial close to the altar (20 foot high and across – figure, flags, cannon and canon balls).
