Tyne and Wear HER(166): North Gosforth Chapel

  • Description

    "The chapel consisted of nave, c. 45 feet x 23.5 feet, and chancel 21.5 feet x 20 feet+, externally. The nave had at some time been shortened, a new west wall being built some 7 feet east of the original. The nave was entered by a south door, near its west end. The chancel has a north door. The whole now stands some 2-3 courses above a chamfered base course. The evidence for burials consisted of coffins, grave covers, plain and decorated, medieval and 17th century, and 4 skeletons found in the chancel. It has been suggested, on architectural evidence, that the chapel might be 12th century, but the first reference to a chaplain is in 1296...."
