Full Description

A chapel stood in the hamlet of Normanton, contiguous to a farm yard, to which it now serves as a barn. Of late it has been re-roofed and the walls repaired. (1)
The owner of Chapel Farm believes that the barn at SK 70907 54811 was the building refered to by (1); this is mainly C18/C19 brick with a modern roof and stone plinth. It exhibits no architectural evidence of former ecclesiastic use but local legend is firm that this was a chapel. (2)
