The next building has been a pain the neck as far as research goes. Little is known about it. Said to have been dedicated to a St. James is all we really know. When it was built and for what purpose are open to speculation. It can be found at the back of the Abbey and may have been a tomb shrine. Some references call it a chapel, whilst others refer to it as a cell, which would suggest that its purpose was for living quarters. It’s a low lying rectangular structure built with roughly coursed granite rubble. Each wall is only about 1 meter in height, whilst the east gable is approx 3 meters. There is also a small lintel splayed ope in the east gable.
