1/49 Lyscombe Cottage
immediately south
26.1.56 west of Lyscombe
Chapel (formerly listed as
Cottage 60 yds E. N.E of
Lyscombe Farmhouse)


Detached cottage, formerly for the priest. C16, extended to west in C17.
West wall of the addition was repaired and refenestrated early C19. The
whole is now derelict. Flint rubble walls, with some brick dressings.
Roofless. East wall has a boldly projecting chimney breast, south side of
which is splayed above first floor level and carried on a stone corbel. To
the north, the chimney breast incorporates a stone vice which has, in the
east side, a small loop consisting of a chamfered vertical slit with a
circular widening at the centre; it overlooks the former south doorway of
the chapel. Other windows and doorways in east part were altered and
rebuilt in brick, early C19. Brick doorway on north side has reset timber
surround, c C16, with chamfered triangular head and jambs. C17 western part
of south wall contains 3-light stone mullioned windows. Scratch dial near
the south west corner. West wall was repaired early C19; two first floor
windows with 4-centred brick heads and jambs. In the gable are two reset
C15 or early C16 fragments; part of a 4-centred stone window head with
trefoil headed lights and a small stone panel with paired ogee-headed
openings. Inside, the ground floor room of the east part of the cottage
had, until recently, an original open timber ceiling divided into 6 panels
by deeply cambered intersecting beams and plates. To the east is an open
fireplace with a deep cambered and chamfered bressummer and chamfered stone
jambs with run-out stops. (RCHM Dorset III, p76 (2))
