St Michael's Chapel

Period: Early-Late Medieval

NGR Easting: 229510

NGR Northing: 467350

Description: Medieval burial ground.

Graves have been found both inside the ruined chapel and outside immediately to the north and east. The presence of lintel graves suggests that the site has been in use from medieval times onwards, and intermittently until the early 19th century for the burial of shipwreck victims.

The burial ground is enclosed within a grass covered bank with an average width of 3.0 m and an average height of 0.8m. Whether this is the original enclosure of a keeill, which may have stood on the site (see record 0132.10), or a feature of the 12th century building, is not now evident.
