South east aspect. The building probably dates back at least to the C11, and may well have been founded in C6 in the first wave of Christianity. The entrance is via the stairs to the north, and a west doorway and steps lead to the beach. The inside is lined with stone benches. A shallow depression by the north wall was the well - water filtered by the limestone could be scooped up using a limpet shell. At the east end is a stone altar and a stone holy water basin (piscina) and steps leading to a small cell in the rocks. (Photo Oct 2010).
