OS 6" map (1957)

A chapel is said to have stood in its burying-ground on a small patch of elevated ground in 'Chapel Meadow'. The site is enclosed by the remains of a low bank or wall and almost surrounded by marshy ground. Bones were uncovered in the removal of some earth about 1810.

'Chapel Well' is a spring at the W end of the enclosure. ONB derives the name Dalreagle (on which farm the site lies) from 'Dailraigle' - Plain of the Cemetery.

Name Book 1848; RCAHMS 1912

Generally as described. The turf-covered earth enclosing bank has almost faded out except at the E angle where it is c.3.5m wide and 0.5m high. The site of the Chapel Well is indicated by a small hollow obscured by stone debris.

Visited by OS (WDJ) 19 August 1970
