NOTES: A chapel has existed on this site since the 13th century. In 1846 Edward Blore carried out a complete renovation of the medieval chapel in the Gothic Revival style where the wall panelling was removed and a lofty groined roof was substituted for the old flat ceiling. It suffered greatly from damage by fire and water during World War II. It was restored by Seeley and Paget in the 1950s.
