No 128 (The Chantry)
SY 4692 1/109 28.11.50.


Probably Cl4 or C15. At one time known as the "Prior's House", more probably
the house of a chantry priest. It is a 2-storey stone rubble house with a
projecting 2-storey porch wing at the front. There is a pointed arch to the
porch with the head renewed. Most of the windows appear to be C19. Modern
tiles. Gable ends with stone copings. There is a projecting course of stone
slabs at cornice level. Internally there are some interesting details including
a fireplace opening with shouldered arch and one with a moulded 4-centred lintel.

Nos 86 to 148 (even) form a group, together with Nos 1 to 6 St Mary's Place.
