A rare example of a chapel situated on a farm complex dating from the 16th century. The building still contains most of the original carved oak roof trusses sadly the decorated bosses have disappeared
This building was being used as storage for farm animal feed and was on the English Heritage "Buildings at Risk Register". We undertook a programme of repair to prevent further water damage and to preserve the fabric of the building for the future.
