St Patrick's Chapel, Heysham, overlooking Morecambe Bay. South doorway, C8th Anglo-Saxon with several upright jamb stones & a curved & carved lintel stone. Local tradition says St Patrick founded a small chapel here in C5th after being shipwrecked off the coast or landing en route from Ireland. May have been built as a pilgrimage chapel &/or a retreat house for an early religious community at St Peter's Church just to the E. Eight body-shaped graves are cut into the adjacent rock outcrops.
