WATKIN, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV54436.

At wallandhill remains of medieval chapel of ease.(os citing national gazetteer). There were two chapels of "la wallens", one in throwleigh parish, the other in gidleigh. There is no trace of that in throwleigh, but it probably stood on walland hill, near chagford, on the site of the present chapel barn. Finds of human remains suggest former chapel graveyard.(rawson). The chapel at "la wallen", or wallandhill, is given as an alternative to lidwell, dawlish, in the story of the monk of haldon.(watkin).
