St Michael’s Chapel on Rame Head, Cornwall, UK. Submitted by Christine Douglas.
In the mediæval period a chapel was constructed on the headland and, in common with many other chapels and churches in high and rocky places, was dedicated to St Michael the Archangel. The chapel is well constructed out of local slates probably cut from the surrounding rocks and cliffs and it still retains an impressive barrel vaulted stone roof which has helped preserve the structure. Traces of render survive in places suggesting that both interior and exterior were rendered and white- washed so that it would have been an eye-catching feature for vessels approaching Plymouth Sound. Internally there is some structural evidence to suggest the later addition of a stone staircase and upper storey.
