MONUMENT NO. 7493

DESCRIPTION + /

A chapel was built in South Charlton before 1273 by the Lucker family. Divine service was suspended shortly after 1343, possibly as a result of war, and it lapsed into a ruinous condition. It was rebuilt and a tower added at the west end by the Earl of Northumberland in 1450 for the protection of the inhabitants. By the 17th century it was again delapidated, although still used until the 18th century as the village school. By 1865, most of it had disappeared.
