Monument record MDR13314 - Possible site of chapel, north-east of Old Dove Plantation, Scropton

Type and Period (1)

  • (Medieval - 1066 AD to 1539 AD)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

The earliest surviving map of Scropton, dated 1764, shows a field to the south-west of the village that is called 'Chapel Reins', alongside a now lost road running from the River Dove to Scropton. The same field [although the shape has altered] is referred to on the tithe map of 1847 as 'Chapel Ruins and Little Chapel'. This may point to the former presence of an isolated chapel in the medieval period, when some chapels were built at the roadside near bridges, fords or ferrying points. (1)
