Not many people know of the existence of this stone archway, hidden away in a patch of woodland adjacent to County Hall. I certainly didn’t, and stumbled across it by accident. It’s described on maps as a chapel, but it seems more likely to be a folly of some sort, located in the grounds of a large house owned by the Martineau family which once stood on the site.
