- Baptist Chapel
23.8.55
GV II

Arch, re-set. Medieval. Granite. Consists of a 2-centred arch with 2 sets of
quarter-round mouldings; convex stops at foot. Protective layer of C18 or C19 red
brick on top. C19 iron gate with pointed head, apparently designed for the arch.
Patch of granite ashlar walling at either side of arch is surmounted by 2 pieces of
re-set granite, one on each side, splayed on the underside, the splay cut to a very
slight hollow. Believed locally to be the remnant of a monastery, but no such
institution is known to have existed in the town.
