Keys to the Past

Brandon Chapel (Ingram)

These are the remains of a medieval chapel. It was first recorded in 1432, when the Vicar of Eglingham was punished for failing to supply a priest for the chapel. By the mid 17th century the chapel was in ruins, though the graveyard was used for burials until at least 1811. The ruins were partly repaired in 1903, and the graveyard cleared out. The remains of a 12th century font were found here suggesting that the church was of an early date. Five gravestones are still visible. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
