Scenes East of the Yorkshire Dales in North Yorkshire

It is a typical four corned-towered castle and Leland at the time of Henry VIII described it as 'a goodly castel'
On the right of the castle, a 100m down the road, a medieval window seems to have been preserved in an old barn! Immediately to the right of the main castle buildings is the Chapel of ? dating from the late 16th century?

The Chapel attached to the east end of Snape Castle.
The east window and altar of the Chapel.
