Fragments of ecclesiastical masonry.
Photograph in file shows large tracery fragments, perhaps 14th century, and what appears to be part of a Norman roll moulding.
Informant connects these with the record of a manorial chapel in the parish (see NHER 11959) but they seem rather grand for this and may have come from the parish church (NHER 2210) during alterations.
