Full Description

[another] chapel, for a long time, baffled the utmost industry I could use to discover it; but, at length, I have been…enabled to asscertain the exact spot of ground on which it stood. It was at the upper end of Farthing Street [now King Street], between the road to Burgage Hill and that which leads to Burgage Green. A person of the name of Gilbert, who now lives on the premises, perfectly recollects the foundations being dug up and sold. To what Saint it was dedicated, and all other particulars relative to it, are now beyond discovery. (1)
"Farthing Street" is now unknown to the GPO, Police and Library. However the description of (1) coupled with field perambulation suggested it to be the small, now unnamed street centred at SK 7041 5405 [probably wrong - see above]. No remains of a chapel were noted and enquiries of local residents were negative. (2)
