Period: Early Medieval

Description: Medieval chapel and burial ground. The site was investigated by the Manx Archaeological Survey (1915). The chapel is orientated ESE-WNW, and measures 4.7 by 2.8m internally. The walls are 0.7m thick, and stand 0.8m high from the floor, which is now cobbled. The Survey found no trace of an altar, nor windows, though a recess or aumbry was noted in the ‘north’ wall. The door is in the ‘west’ gable. The chapel stands within a slightly raised area, which the Survey took to represent a cemetery earlier than the present parish graveyard: lintel graves and unlined inhumations were noted, and two carved stone crosses recovered from separate graves.
