Elston Old Chapel History

Although neither a church nor a chapel are mentioned in Domesday, it was recorded that ‘Norman the priest’ held land at Elston from Roger de Bulli. J C Cox directly associated this entry in Domesday with Elston Old Chapel, asserting that the priest ‘doubtless’ served at the chapel here, but this could apply equally to the parish church.

The earliest part of the building, the round arched south doorway with bold zig-zag moulding, has been dated to the twelfth-century.
