Chapel Of St Edmund

Hob Uid: 81275
Location :
East Riding of Yorkshire
Barmston
Grid Ref : TA1540061670
Summary : St Edmund's Chapel (rebuilt 1893) stands on a mound, alleged to be a motte or a barrow, but apparently a scarped natural feature.
More information : (TA 15406167) St Edmunds Chapel (NAT) (1)

St Edmund's Chapel, rebuilt 1893, stands on a large mound (supposed round barrow or motte) 110ft in diameter and 9-10ft high, with traces of a surrounding ditch to the south and west. Remains of grassy banks (building foundations) are also visible immediately south between the mound and ditch. (2)

The mound, which is elongated, appears to be a scarped natural feature. This suggests a motte rather than a tumulus, if the premise of either is accepted. Traces of the ditch are very vague, and add little to the evidence. Surveyed at 1:2500. The intervening banks form part of the Medieval shrinkage of Fraisthorpe Village. (3)
