This monument consists of the remains of a medieval chapel within an enclosure. The chapel is already scheduled, but this extension brings the associated enclosure within the protected area.

The walls of the chapel stand to about 1.5m high. They are drystone built with an external batter and have corners which are rounded externally. The entrance is at the west end of the south wall. Like many early chapels it stands near a natural spring. The enclosure follows the natural topography and is marked by a turf-covered bank.

The area to be scheduled is a circle with a diameter of 70m centred on the NE corner of the chapel. It is marked in red on the accompanying map.
