Full Description

Chapel (NR) (site of) OS 6"map, (1967)

A small, sandy mound overgrown with bent, covers the remains of a chapel, parts of the walls of which were visible a few yards before 1872. Nothing is known of it beyond that it was a chapel of primitive build and that it was covered by sand drift. There are traces of ruins of unknown origin nearby.
Name Book 1872.

The very slight remains of foundation of a structure which may be a chapel, lie among sand dunes.
