Evidence of what may be a 16th century chapel has been uncovered in a public park in Marlow, England.

Initially, the team found brickwork, apparently from the 1850s house, but then uncovered a flint work wall.

MAS spokesman Doug Courtney said: “This is thought to be from the earlier 1750’s farmhouse as close inspection of early photographs show small areas of flint work and the record indicates that the farmhouse was only part demolished and altered into the house.

“Most exciting was the revelation that under this flint work was a chalk block wall, and comparison with other sites in the vicinity indicates that this maybe 16th century or earlier.
