This chapel was part of the prior's country retreat, Beaurepaire. This ink view shows the south side of the interior of the west part of the chapel. The building was extensively remodelled in the late-medieval period, so 13th-century lancet windows, such as the one shown, alternate with two-light windows dating from the late-15th or early-16th centuries.

The building was collapsing into ruin when Grimm drew it, but its shell was substantially intact. The site is now a ploughed field.
