Chapel, now ruinous. C8 or C9. Sandstone rubble, with
consolidation work carried out in 1903 using stone tiles.
Rectangular plan. The east gable wall, most of the south wall,
and the east part of the north wall survive to heights of
between 3m and 4m. Other wall survive as foundations. The
south wall contains the west jambs of a window splayed on the
inside, and a doorway with long-and-short jambs. The outer
head stone of the doorway is cut with 3 concentric grooves
above a segmental arch. Excavations in 1977-8 revealed
evidence of an earlier chapel, which was rebuilt and extended
towards the east to form the building which now remains.
Scheduled Ancient Monument.
(V C H: 109).
