Full description

A chapel of St Martin at the Bishop of Exeter's manor house at Lanner is mentioned in 1314, 1317 (b1) and 1321 (b2). It is uncertain where this chapel was. Henderson believed that it stood between Lanner and Tretherras, where pieces of carved stone have been found (25241); but he also admits "it is always possible that the Bishop's chapel was more nearly adjoining the house at Lanner" (b2). Adams states, "it seems unlikely that the Bishop would not have had a private oratory attached to his manor house as well as the more distant chapel of ease for the estate" (b3). A chapel at Lanner Barton is listed by Warner (b4) but it is uncertain which chapel his sources refer to.
