This picturesque ruin stands amidst the humps in the ground which are all that remains of the medieval village of Runston it once served. We arrived in late afternoon with low sunshine illuminating this rather special place.
Part of the font taken from this building is to be found in St Julian's Church, Newport, incorporated into the north-west entrance as a holy water stoup.
Here is the sign attached to the building:
"This small chapel was built in the early 12th century soon after the conquest of the district by the Normans. The chapel, along with the village which it served and whose remains are visible under the turf, fell into ruin in the 18th century."
Here are some views of the various window openings.
The fabulous chancel arch.
The west end - their appears to be foundations of a tower in the grass, much larger than the current structure at this end which rather more resembles a chimney!
And finally a view of this glorious place from the south.
