Brasted Chart

Philippines. Built 1834 in a wood.

The area around has the general name of 'the Chart', which often appears on maps round here, and means an area of rough common land. Chart in a place name relates to Old English ‘ceart’ and occurs in areas on sandstone.  It means rough uncertain waste land with gorse.
