2/42 Ruins of Lady Chapel
on north bank of
River Wansbeck
II
Chapel, mid C14 probably rebuilt in later C15. Squared stone with cut dressings.
Single cell, only c.7 x 4 metres internally. Walls survive up to 4 courses high;
jambs of doorway, with drawbar hole, in centre of west end. Carved shield with
arms of Ogle and Bertram quartering Kirkby, removed in early C19 to Bothal
Castle, imply construction by Robert 1st Lord Ogle (d.1363). C18 engravings
show some late C15 features.

(Relief shield with bearings carved on rock face 12 metres north-east of the
chapel probably carved by a Morpeth curate early in C19).
