Eastern Keeill, Maughold

Period: Early Medieval

NGR Easting: 249370

NGR Northing: 491660

Description: Medieval chapel and burial ground. The site was investigated by the Manx Archaeological Survey (1915). The structure is orientated ESE-WNW, and measures 6.4 by 3.4m internally, with a doorway in the ‘west’ gable; the walls are 0.4m high and 0.7m thick. The chapel has been obscured by a later structure and a well, the latter of which was sunk through the south-east corner and appears to have destroyed any trace of an altar. Traces of early burials have been recorded, and two fragments of carved stone crosses were recovered by the Survey.
