Chapel in the garden
and to the north-east
of Church House
TQ 0418 17/689 15.5.55


Small C15 monastic building. Stone rubble. Tiled roof. It contains a stoup.
At one time it was converted into a stable and still contains a manger.
It now retains more original medieval work than the house portion of the building.
C15 L-shaped building. The south wing is of 2 storeys, the west wing of one storey
only. The ground floor is of Pulborough sandstone ashlar. Above weather-boarding
with some timber-framing visible at the east and west ends of the south wing with
plaster infilling. The roof is partly of Horsham slabs, partly of tiles, and is
of king post construction inside. The entrance for vehicles was in the centre of
the west wing, which was the bar. This is a large stone four-centred arch, but
it is now blocked on both sides, on the west with red brick and on the east with
stone. To the south of this archway on the east face of the west wing are 3 four-centred
stone doorways with deeply moulded jambs and lintel and traces of a dripstone over.
Two of these are now blocked with red brick. The west wing also has 2 blocked cinquefoil
lancets, and buttresses at the angles of its north front. The south wing which
was the stables and possibly sleeping accommodation over, has 3 similar doorways,
of which one is blocked, and 2 windows with four-centred heads containing 2 lights
each with a stone mullion between and dripstone over. In the east wall of the south
wing are 2 stone lancets on the ground floor and above 2 three-light windows, now
blocked, with cusping of cinquefoil-headed lights and wooden mullions. In the west
wall is a similar window of 6 lights but higher in the wall.
