User-Submitted Notes

Lyscombe chapel was probably on the monastic route between the abbeys at Abbotsbury and Milton, and may have begun as a stopover for passing monks; it is said that the rent they paid to the local landowner was twelve fish a year. The chancel of the chapel dates from the C12, but the nave was almost totally rebuilt in two stages in the C15 and C16.
