Chapel dedicated to St John the Baptist, now outbuilding. Late medieval, much modified. Rubble, corrugated iron roof. Single-unit plan space with an attached outshut, approx 20m to the N of the old farmhouse (qv). The long roof-slope facing the farmhouse is contained in rough coped gable ends. It is entered from the S by plank doors, up wide stone steps to the 'nave', which retains no recognisable detail, but has an opening with wood lintels through a thick wall to the right, and evidence of blocked openings in the end gable wall and a small niche; this wall is not bonded to the 2 lateral walls. There is some transparent corrugated sheeting to the N slope. The pinnacles at North Furzehill (qv) and Ye Old Cottage (qv), Barbrook, said to have come from this chapel.
