858-1/3/47 (South side)
03/09/73 Former Chapel at South Furzehill
(Formerly Listed as:
Former South Furzehill Farmhouse and
remains of Chapel to north)


Chapel dedicated to St John the Baptist, now outbuilding. Late
medieval, much modified. Rubble, corrugated iron roof.
Single-unit plan space with an attached outshut, approx 20m to
the N of the old farmhouse (qv). The long roof-slope facing
the farmhouse is contained in rough coped gable ends. It is
entered from the S by plank doors, up wide stone steps to the
'nave', which retains no recognisable detail, but has an
opening with wood lintels through a thick wall to the right,
and evidence of blocked openings in the end gable wall and a
small niche; this wall is not bonded to the 2 lateral walls.
There is some transparent corrugated sheeting to the N slope.
The pinnacles at North Furzehill (qv) and Ye Old Cottage (qv),
Barbrook, said to have come from this chapel.
