Notes about this historic site

1 There was a chapel at Bradwell standing in the memory of man, which was entirely demolished upon the report of its being like to be turned into a Meeting House.
2 Adjacent to the OS map location for the chapel are the grassed-over foundations of a small building. The plan, size and orientation are all suitable for a small chapel and the owners of Broadwell House state that this is locally known as the chapel site (probably due to the OS publication).
3 The adjoining field at SP45676555 was known as Chapel Close.
4 A trial trench dug by the present owner at one end of the rectangular area produced nothing of interest.
