A watching brief of rebuilding work in the chapel recorded the remnants of a blocked in splayed window in the north wall and an area of painted plaster was observed on one side
of the straight joint which represented the remnins of the window. In the area beneath the window a blocked in doorway was also partially exposed. A reused stone forming part of the blocking was inscribed with upside down graffiti depicting the initials D.P., and dated 1859,
and therefore revealing that the blocking up of the doorway occurred after this date. The renovation work also included the excavation of new service trenches through the graveyard
to the south and east of the church. The only significant feature observed during this work was the remains of a bríck wall some 30m to the east of the church. This foundation is almost certainly the remains of an earlier church boundary wall and ís most likely of a l9th century date.
