Humbleton Chapel

  • Description

    ""The old parish records from Humbleton, a now deserted village, mention burial taking place in the village. It is believed to have occurred at the site of the old chapel. This has long disappeared, but the site is still known. It is on a small gravely knoll in the field still known as Chapel Field. The top of the knoll has been flattened to allow a building to be constructed; this is probably the old Chapel. Part of the east end wall of a rectangular building can still be seen. It is 5.5m long and stands about 1m high. A roughly rectangular area depression is visible in the turf, and this probably marks the remainder of the building. There is no sign of the graveyard, though human bones were ploughed out of the field in 1854. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law."
