GV II*

Chapel. Early C17 possibly built for the fourth Sir John Cutts (d.1615), and
said to have been consecrated by Bishop Heaton (1600-1609). Restored mid C19
and late C20. Local red brick, and later brick repairs with clunch and
limestone dressings. Plain tile roofs. Originally single storeyed with a
gallery; two storey wing to north, possibly for priest's lodgings with
entrance facing east and with two C17 clunch windows. Gabled facade facing
east with diagonal buttress to left hand, and restored window of seven-lights
in four-centred arch with inserted panelled and studded door below. (Cole's
drawing shows original window and condition of chapel). Rebuilt rear stack,
and reduced and capped side stack. Interior: Five late C15 roof trusses
with ogee moulding, reused possibly from the hall in C19 reconstruction with
C17 style carved jewel-stops. The chapel was used as a smoking room in the
C19, and later as a cottage.
