10/98 Sun Cottage
(formerly listed as Joiners
4.2.69 shop - Chapel on OS)
Marked as Sunniside Cottage on Ordnance Survey Map. Medieval chapel, now
house. Possibly C13, with C19 alterations and C20 alterations and extensions.
Rubble, C20 pantile roof. single storey approximately 3 bays. Quoins. All
external openings are of C20 date. Interior: 4 medieval roof trusses
(3 exposed) of angled principals with arched collars, supported on corbels.
In the east wall, to right of C20 fireplace, piscina moved from the conventional
position in south-east corner, with triangular hood carved from one piece
of stone, thought to be of French origin. West doorway now gives access to
bathroom. The chapel has been identified as that of a small cell, established
at Moulton in the C13, of the French Abbey of Bagard, which was highly esteemed
by the Earl of Richmond. Desite the dissolution of the English properties
of alien priorities by the Crown in 1414, the Chapel was still used for
services in the early C15, and presumably continued so until the Reformation
(article on Moulton in Scorton Grammar School Magazine of December 1925).
Recorded to have been granted by the Crown in 1586 to John Awbrey and John
Radcliffe (VCH; i, p197), and to have been used as a carpenter's shop in the
late C19. Bulmer History, Topography and Directory of North Yorkshire (1890),
