Full description

According to (S1), in the field north of Tuttington church were the foundations of a chapel of St Botolph mentioned in 1214, known by the improbable name of Meton-He (if this is not a misprint!).

28 September 1977. Visited by E. Rose (NAU).
The west side of the field is now covered with modern houses. The postmaster says he watched the site when foundation trenches and septic tanks were dug, and nothing at all was revealed. The east side is still empty.
E. Rose (NAU) 28 September 1977.
