Notes on MOUNTON CHAPEL, Canaston Woods, Pembrokeshire 2010

Originally a 13th century chapel but restored in the 18th and 19th centuries, it is very ruinous with the roof half collapsed and the other half in a very precarious state.

I squeezed through the high security fence that surrounds this small chapel in the middle of a field. I was not going to enter but the fence had already been breached and I was pleased I did. Inside there was the usual clutter and masonry of an abandoned, and partly fallen, property laying on the ground. Graffiti was scratched into the soft damp plaster on the walls ā€“ names and dates, some of which dated back twenty years, all part of the chapelsā€™ recent history. Some areas of brightly coloured paint on corbels and small wall alcoves, framed in blue and red paintwork. These small areas of colour gave hint at a once beautifully decorated chapel.

Outside just off centre to the entrance is a large five foot square large foundation stone. I was uncertain of its purpose.
