Taken from the same spot as Bob's 1990 photo NZ4229 : Embleton Church, County Durham. In the intervening years the roof has partially collapsed and the graveyard has become overgrown with many of the stones fallen.
Embleton Chapel-of-Ease

"Embleton Township comprises an area of 3356 acres, and its ratable value is 1841...

"The hamlet of Embleton is situated four miles east by south of Sedgefield, and contains a chapel-of-ease, in which the curates of the mother-church officiate on Sundays. It was anciently called Elmdene, a name supposed to be derived from an elm wood which formerly flourished in the neighbouring dene.

"Church History

"The present chapel-of-ease here occupies the site of an early chapel which. like the mother-church, was dedicated to the Virgin, for we find that 'Alice de Emedon, daughter and heir of John del Chambre, formerly a burgess of Newcastle, directed her body to be buried in the chapel of the Blessed Mary of Emedon.' The present chapel is a small plain stone edifice, built in 1860, when the old one was pulled down."

[From History, Topography and Directory of Durham, Whellan , London, 1894]
