Cadlew Chapel

Cadlew Chapel is a defiled chapel east of Bravil containing necromancers.

The desecrated interior

A Nirnroot plant can be found outside, just to the left of the entrance door. The following additional plants can be found in the area: 21 fly amanita, 5 foxglove, and 15 summer bolete. A path leads west from the chapel down several flights of stone steps to a small pier in Niben Bay, with two intact and two empty coffins nearby.

Though the chapel may seem inviting on the outside to the weary adventurer, one should be cautious when entering. The sanctuary has been desecrated by necromancers; two of them can be found here, with a dead treasure hunter lying on a bloodstained table, two inanimate zombies strewn about, and a corpse hanging above the altar. A chest and a pair of rugged pants are near the dead treasure hunter's body. On the small bloodstained table in front of the altar, amidst several severed limbs, are two human hearts; two samples of mort flesh are also on the table and the altar. Near the door is a wooden ladder leading to a small cupola on top of the chapel containing a skeleton and a locked chest. The cupola also offers an amazing view, including of the Ayleid ruin Nenalata to the south on the other side of the Silverfish River and the city of Bravil to the west across the bay.


  • The chapel's altar is still functional, but cannot be used due to two immovable severed arms that block the blessing from reaching you. Therefore, if you activate the altar, you will see the standard message ("Rejoice! Through faith, your afflictions are banished!"), but the blessing will have no actual effect on your character.
