Summary

Moorgate farm. Vis=6/5/1953(os) the site of a chapel at moorgate farm. The footings of some rectangular building are to be seen: they consist of two parallel banks running north to south with a foundation of loose stones and packed earth between them. The footings consist of definite walling of roughly rectangular stones plus others of cruder working. In the corner of a drystone garden wall to the north are large oblong worked stones not normally found in such a wall, and probably originally found in the outer walling of the alleged chapel. The chapel area has been dug out and put to use as a pit for manure.
