Bentwichen

Hob Uid: 35081
Location :
Devon
North Devon
North Molton
Grid Ref : SS7307034030
Summary : The alleged site of the remains of a chapel. However, the evidence for this is uncertain.
More information : (SS 73073403) Chapel (NR) (Remains of) (1)

The column in the sketch, indicated by a circled dot on 6"
Record sheet at SS 73073403, stands in a cottage garden and is
composed mostly of rough stones, uncemented. The larger blocks
of stone at the SW corner are dressed, and carved in a fluted
design as shown in sketch.

The carved stone lies on top of the column.

It does not seem that the smaller, rough stones belong to the
original structure. (2)

The isolated "column" of stones described by authority 2 is
still extant but it is doubtful that this represents 'in situ'
remains of the chapel, although the carved stones probably came
from the building. (3)

The column refered to by authority 3 does not survive in the front garden of Bentwichen Cottage at SS 7307 3403. However, pieces of moulded stone are visible in the walls of the garden. (4)
