Former Church of St John)


Former chapel, now disused. C13 with C17 and early C19
modifications. Sandstone random rubble with some brickwork and
plain tiled roof. Single cell forming the chancel of a once
larger structure. West wall largely a C19 infill. Remains of
sandstone walling each side, part squared, but the lower
courses rough as if cut away. Main part of wall is brick, with
wood interlocking tracery to window, and small doorway beneath
the window with plain wood case. 3 hollow chamfered lancet
lights in north wall, 3 splayed lancets to south, the outer
windows with round-arched heads each side of a square headed
central light. Each side wall clearly raised in squared
rubble. Stepped lancet windows in east wall.
INTERIOR: the crude stone bowl font survives, and a single
early C17 roof truss, with moulded tie beam, collar and splat
