Saint Patrick's Chapel, Heysham, near Morecambe, Lancashire, with the nearby St Peter's parish church, is an early Saxon monument dating from the 8th CCE. While the church is still in use the chapel was ruined at an unknown time, presumably in the Reformation, and all records have disappeared so that its exact function is not known. Its famous rock-cut graves are nearby: excavations have revealed a Viking-era cemetery.
