Description

The monument comprises the remains of the small medieval chapel of St. Gwerfrewi, located at the centre of a small D-shaped field to the south of St. Winifred's churchyard. The chapel site survives as a flat topped hillock on which is a shallow depression 3m in diameter.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of the organisation and practice of medieval Christianity. The site forms an important element within the wider medieval landscape. The site is well preserved and retains considerable archaeological potential. There is a strong probability of the presence of evidence relating to chronology, layout, building techniques and functional detail. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
