A medieval (1066 to 1540) chapel was mentioned in charters dating to around 1300. However, little else is known about it, and its precise location has been lost.

This is a scheduled ancient monument encompassing the site of the chapel which is on a platform on the west side of the field known as Chapel Garth. The building was of stone measuring approximately 10m by 20m, without aisles. The chapel is first mentioned in the Chantry Survey of 1547-8.

There are no visible remains above ground today. This site is protected by law.
