THE NEWARKE (South Side),
Remains of St Mary's Vicarage (The Chantry Building)

(Formerly listed as Remains of St Mary's Vicarage (Store at Portland Shoe Factory))


Probably originally C14 though subsequently much altered. Believed to have been built to accommodate the Dean or one of the Canons of the College of the Annunciation of St Mary which was dissolved in 1547. Became St Mary's Vicarage in the late C17. Before its virtual demolition in 1949 it was a three-storey three-window stone house with slate gable-ended roof, rectangular window openings with wood mullion/tansom and leaded panes. All that remains is the ground floor stage: coursed masonry, rectangular on plan, central pointed archway, rectangular window each side, C19 fenestration with four-centred headed lights. The other elevation are patched with modern brickwork.
