Situated on a slight natural rise, the remains of this chapel can still be identified as a small rectangular yard measuring 5.7m x 3.1m internally, within walls 0.8m thick. The extent of the graveyard cannot be ascertained and no gravestones are visible. No further information on the site could be found.
