Killkellan, Ballabeg, Lonan

Period: Medieval

NGR Easting: 243205

NGR Northing: 482455

Description: Medieval burial ground.

The Ordnance Survey 1:2500 First Edition mapping of 1867 shows the site of a chapel and burial ground at this location, formerly named Killkellan, together with the annotation, ‘Site of Chapel & Burial Ground’. The OS places a marker within a small enclosure to the east of the road, which is defined by a curvilinear field boundary.

The enclosure survives today, forming the curtilage boundary of a dwelling, though a Royal Commission field inspector noted in 1976 that otherwise there was no trace of the site and that it had been obliterated by the construction of the railway, residential development and an occupation road.
