Object Classification


Is linear feature?



The location of the chapel is assumed on the basis that it is part of the small lordship of Colgrain, whose NGR is given here. We cannot be certain that it lay in the immediate lands of Colgrain, but it is likely. It seems to have lain not far from Letblaan, the name of a settlement/farm whose rents may have supported the chaplain here.
