New Fence

The fence was first discovered in July 2012 - hard to know the exact date it went up as the church is so isolated.
This fence was, as far as I know at present, authorised by the Representative Body of the Church in Wales, without the knowledge of the local Amroth vicar or any of the church contacts in the parish.
Since its erection a combination lock has been put around the gate - effectively cutting off two thirds of the graveyard to relatives and visitors.
So currently visitors can only head north up the path to the newer section of the yard.

Padlocked gate

Not much room inside the original gate

 Narrow pathway up to top yard - difficult for coffins

 The fence then turns north right across the yard to the old stable
