Full Description

One [chapel] stood at the bottom of Easthorpe in, or near, what is now a close called Palmer's Yard, from the circumstance of Sir Matthew Palmer building a mansion thereon, in the last century but oneā€¦ (1)
In the close where Palmer's house stood, are many vestiges of foundations; and in the adjoining one called Long's Croft numerous others, bearing ample tokens of street regularity. This probably was its ancient termination. In the middle of the northern side of these last mentioned, is a projecting square, on which, perhaps it would not be hazarding too much, to decide, the Chapel stood, it immediately commanding that range of land now known by the name of Chapel-dale.
