SK 4374 1/12 25.2.66. (The Chantry)
Medieval. It is said to have been a chantry founded by the Frecheville
family or, alternatively, a chapel founded by the Musard family in the
C13, but this has been disputed. Stone rubble; 2 storeys, with gabled
end to road; 1 storey plus attic to right with 1 stone dormer; plain sashes,
irregularly spaced; old stone slab roof. The interior has indications
of massive timbering, particularly in the roof, where the timbers are
oddly spaced out. A correct interpretation of the building architecturally
would only be possible during a process of partial stripping out of later
work. A number of skeletons were unearthed here in 1904. Unoccupied
and much in need of repair at time of survey. Reference: Arthur Court,
'Staveley, my Native Town' 1948, with photograph.
