The monument comprises the fragmentary remains of a 13th-century chapel and associated remains, including an enclosure.

The visible remains of the chapel take the form of a rubble-built, crudely mortared wall incorporating a traceried window with solid spandrels and a weathered sill on the ENE side, which forms a gable end of a chapel said to be dedicated to St Cuthbert. Recent survey work has revealed the presence of a robber trench to the WSW which indicates the presence of a small enclosure abutting this side of the wall while to the N, scarps, low banks and gullies have been noted. To the SW of the chapel in an adjacent field lies a large oval-shaped enclosure which suggests the presence of structures associated with the site, probably including the priest's house and a graveyard.

To the ENE of the chapel wall stand the remains of another fragmentary wall abutted by a modern, occupied dwelling which is believed to form part of a former tower of unknown date.

The area to be scheduled is irregular in shape and measures a maximum of 158m N-S by 100m E-W to include the upstanding wall fragment and associated features and the large oval-shaped enclosure to the W, as marked in red on the accompanying map. Excluded from the scheduling are all dykes, fences and gateways above ground level and the top 30cm of all tracks. The fragment of the tower wall is not included, because it forms an integral part of the structure of an occupied dwelling house, and as such is exempt from scheduling.

Statement of Scheduling

Assessment of national importance

The monument is in a stable condition. However, except for the fragmentary remains of a part of a possible gable end of the chapel the monument cannot be positively identified as a chapel and related structures. Therefore the monument does not have the intrinsic, contextual or associative characteristics to meet the criteria for national importance and has been removed from the schedule. Its significance will continue to be recognised as a listed building.
