Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


An early 17th century Roman Catholic chapel, re-roofed circa 1850. It is constructed from coursed rubble with roughly-shaped quoins and cut dressings and a stone slate roof (formerly lead). The chapel is of a simple rectangular plan with a narrower western stair turret. It is a rare example of a Post-reformation Recusant Chapel, traditionally said to have been built with finances raised from the Gunpowder Plot (1605). The chapel became Anglican from 1733. A Roman tombstone is built into the east wall.
