Description

The monument comprises the remains of a small medieval and later chapel known as St Teilo's, which is set within a rectangular churchyard and is roofless. It is rectangular in plan with an added south porch. Most of its fenestration and doorways survive intact or in part. The stone base for the pulpit is on the south side of the nave and broad steps flank the altar.

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.
