Cemetery notes and/or description:
Bonsall is a small hill-village on the high ground west of the Heights of Abraham. With a large church, an ancient market cross and a number of good C17 and C18 houses, it was clearly once a more important place than its present remoteness would suggest; as well as being involved in the lead mining industry general to the area it also became a flourishing centre for framework knitting. The church, of 13th century origin, stands in a prominent position overlooking the village. It has a 15th century tower surrounded by stone crowns and gargoyles and surmounted by a magnificent spire decorated with ornamental bands. One of the pillars in the north arcade has a curious stone figure at its base known as The Bonsall Imp - a cross between a frog and a unicorn. A major restoration project was initiated in 1997.
