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 – names and dates, some of which dated back twenty years, all part of the chapels’ 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.
