Description

The site is a rectangular building 7.5m by 4.3m internally, and with walls about 1m thick. There is a two centred doorway at the W end, with a crucifixion above it and a circular window above that. There are two single lancet windows in the N wall, which are late insertions with brick arches. There are two single lancet windows in the S wall with red sandstone quoins; the E wall has a single lancet window similar to, but larger than, those in the S wall. The roof is supported on two arched braced trusses, now exposed to the elements and weathering badly. The roof covering was of slate, most of these have now fallen.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of chapel remains. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
