A GUIDE TO THE CHAPEL OF THE HOLY TRINITY

The Chapel has deteriorated in recent years and this is particularly clear when comparing the current structure with photos taken during the 1960s when the gravestones in front of the Chapel were removed.

What survives are the main part of the south and east walls, and the Tower. Externally the fine ashlar work has large openings, with 4 central arches containing signs of cusping at the top of 3 light mullioned windows with thin edge mouldings.

Between the openings are the remains of canopied niches, with octagonal bosses, thin panels above a plain slender octagonal attached shaft. This design is repeated at the corners of the stair turret, which is otherwise plain, with some small plain windows beneath hood-moulds.

The south door, beneath a smaller window, has disappeared.
