SX7466 CHURCH HILL
1011-1/7/4 (North West side)
10/01/51 Chapel ruins to east of Church of
Chapel, possibly detached chantry chapel. Ruinous. c1300.
Local grey slatestone rubble with freestone dressings. Plan:
roofless ruin of an aisleless building of which the E wall,
part of the S wall and a small section of the N wall remain.
EXTERIOR: very thick walls with putlock holes and a wide,
deeply splayed E window, dressed externally with alternating
bands of chamfered red and cream stone with a glazing rebate.
The surviving dressings suggest a trefoil-headed window. The S
side retains the remains of a similarly-decorated probable
lancet to the E, the sill mended with mullions; a doorway with
a cranked relieving arch (dressings gone) and the E jamb of
another window. The N side preserves the fragmentary remains
of the E jamb of another window. INTERIOR: preserves the
fragmentary remains of wall plaster. Close inspection reveals
some traces of red and yellow painted decoration on the splay
of the E window. A very unusual survival.
