5/84 Columbjohn Chapel and
- Churchyard Wall
Private chapel. Circa 1844. Ashlar volcanic trap with roof of red clay fish scale
plain tiles; tiny single-celled structure in the Romanesque Revival style with west
West end: bellcote with pyramidal tiled roof, with small buttresses to west, north
and south, rests on a large central buttress with one off-set. Bell survives.
South side: south door set at extreme west end round-headed, 2 orders of zig-zag and
1 plain, with nook shafts and cushion capitals. A single lancet to the east, round-
headed with zig-zag moulding.
East end: wide single-light, round-headed window, with zig-zag and nook shafts with
cushion capitals. Stone apex cross.
North side: 2 blind bays, framed by pilaster buttresses, the upper horizontal
chamfered. Wall plinth around whole.
Interior: sides enlivened by recesses under segmentally-headed arches (3 to north,
2 to south), with bead moulding; pilaster between. Round-headed sedilia; east
window with hook shafts, cushion capitals and zig-zag. Diagonally boarded roof.
The random rubble volcanic trap graveyard wall is included in this listing.
The old chapel was overgrown and neglected in 1831 (drawing by John Gendall), and
the present plan bears no resemblance to that of the chapel marked on the 1843 tithe
map. There is no record of the architect but perhaps it is by Cockrell.
