This record has been generated from an "old county number" (OCN) scheduling record. These are monuments that were not reviewed under the Monuments Protection Programme and are some of our oldest designation records. As such they do not yet have the full descriptions of their modernised counterparts available. A 16th century chapel with a single central nave. Its exterior is plain: the west main door in the south side , with a richly decorated lintel. The priests door is to the east end of the south side and is plain and smaller. Disused as a church since 1850, but possibly occupies the site of an earlier chapel as reused achitectural fragments occur in the south wall. These suggest 13th century date at least.<1> Building has been converted t o a church village hall (St Margarets) and is in very good order. After a period of decay. Churchyard still i n use. <2> Chapel/Post Medieval//Roofed building SOURCES = Desc text/AM7/Johnson JS/1976//<1>; Desc text/AM107/Hart CR/1984//< 2>;
