Notes about this historic site

1 By tradition there was formerly a chapel at Cosford but no certain traces can be identified, save that the foundations of several of the cottages, and one of the larger cottages called the Old Manor House, are composed of large blocks of sandstone, which was ceratinly not quarried near. For some time a large circular Norman font lay in a farmyard here, and was used as a trough under a pump. This was removed to a spot beside the canal, just below the house. The existence of the font would seem to prove the existence of the chapel.
2 The site of the chapel could not be determined.
