Chapel of Ravensdale (Berwick upon Tweed)

This is the site of a small medieval chapel. Work by archaeologists has found stone walls and several human burials. Fragments of pottery dating from the 13th to 17th century have also been found. It is not clear who owned the chapel, but it may have belonged to the Dominicans. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries it became a storehouse until it was demolished in the 17th or 18th centuries. Nothing remains to be seen today.
