PeriodPost Medieval

A late fourteenth-early fifteenth century chapel joined to the late fifteenth century chancel of the parish church (NPRN 32283) by a passage building dated to 1614.
The chapel has an original two light east window and an original west doorway. The bellcote over the west gable may have been an original feature. The roof and parapets were replaced in the late fifteenth-early sixteenth century when the north doorway was inserted. The south window is seventeenth century.
The chapel is set askew to the church, being oriented to the south-east. It was probably built as a shrine to the cult of the founder saint and may have been adopted as a private funerary chapel following the reformation.
