The Ruin of St. John's Chapel
The Ruin of St. John's Chapel
Squared sandstone on chamfered plinth. Nave and chancel continuous. Remains of roll-moulded south door traceable. West wall survives to 8ft in height and contains remains of chamfered window opening. The chapel was abandoned in 1776 the old building was then "thatched and walled up, to prevent its prophaned by any improper uses". Tradition relates that the hermit was murdered in 1159, but it is probably unfounded.
Its only inhabitants now are the occasional wandering sheep and rabbits.
