The old wooden chest was one of a small number of items that were kept when the original timber framed chapel was demolished and the contents removed. It is made from solid slabs of oak held together by iron bands. It probably dates from the late 15th or early 16th century and was the strong box for valuables: robes, books, plate, and money for the poor. It was secured by two locks and an iron bar passing through three loops across the front.
