Keeill Woirrey Burial Ground

Period: Early Medieval

NGR Easting: 243270

NGR Northing: 489460

Description: Medieval burial ground. The site was investigated by the Manx Archaeological Survey (1915).

The ground surface on a south-facing hillside has been built up to create a more level site, probably as a result of burial activity, creating an oval enclosure measuring about 40 by 20m.

The enclosure around the chapel contains several stones set on edge which probably represent lintel graves. Three carved and inscribed stones have been recovered from the site.
