6/46 Remains of Chapel
Immediately North East
of Painsford Manor

Private chapel of ease. Dated 1683. A rebuilding of a medieval chapel
licensed in 1400. Rebuilt by John Kelland of Painsford Manor (qv). Dressed
slate rubble walls; now roofless.
Plan: Probably originally a single cell chapel of rectangular plan. It is
now a roofless ruin, and some of the walls have fallen.
Exterior: On the south side facing the back of the house there is a round
arch doorway in Beerstone with a cyma and ovolo mouldings and a hoodmould.
There appears to have been a keystone. An inscription around the arch is now
illegible. To the right of the doorway a small tablet in a moulded frame with
the Kelland arms and date 1683. The north wall is more complete and taller,
but the east end is now open.
Interior: There are no features inside.
This private chapel of St John the Baptist was licensed in 1400. John Kelland
who remodelled the house, Painsford Manor, in the late C17 rebuilt the chapel
at the same time and it remained in use until about the middle of the C18.
