Winlaton, Chapel of St. Anne
Religious Ritual and Funerary
Place of Worship
There does not seem to be any original source to support the existence of this supposed medieval chapel. Surtees in the 19th century is apparently the first to mention it, saying that St. Anne's Chapel in Winlaton had been destroyed in the rebellion of the earls in 1569, and was, in 1705, replaced on the same site by another. This in turn fell into decay and in 1816 a large schoolroom was built over it.
