HISTORY Chapel Walls, also known as the Wolsingham Manor of The Bishop Of Durham is believed to be part of the medieval village associated with the former Bishop's Moated Manor house. Although very little visible evidence remains above ground, between 2009 and 2017, excavation works were carried out and much was found to back this up (please follow the link for further information) https://www.vindomorasolutions.co.uk/vindomora-active/chapel-walls-1/
