8/39 Remains of Chapel of St. John the
Baptist at Bailey Hall


Remains of chapel, 'lately built' in 1338 (VCH). Sandstone rubble with
some sandstone ashlar dressings remaining. Parts of the north and east
walls remain, to a maximum height of about 5 feet. They have a
weathered plinth, and diagonal buttresses partly robbed of their
dressings. There is said to be a vault remaining, but the entrance is
now overgrown. The chapel window in the west front of Stonyhurst (q.v.)
was removed from here by the Duchess of Norfolk c.1740-50.
