NHER Number:25840
Type of record:Monument
Name:St Botolph's Chapel


Sources indicate that a chapel to St Botolph was present in this parish, surviving into the medieval period. It is possible that this chapel is the same one sources record being granted to Wililam Warde in 1549. The exact location of this chapel is uncertain, though sources mention an old house, the last in the village on the road to Outwell, which appears to have previously been a chapel. Other possible locations include NHER 25845 and NHER 34743.
