12/133 Chapel, now barn,
north-west of Blencow
Hall Farmhouse


Private chapel, now barn. Probably late C16 with C19 alterations. Pink
sandstone rubble walls under graduated greenslate roof. Single storey, single
bay. Entrance is now through the west open gable. Small side window openings
and rebuilt 2-light pointed-arched east window. Part of the north wall extends
beyond the present west gable to its original full extent, but has been reduced
in height. W. Hutchinson's History of Cumberland, 1794, i, p.414, refers "over
the door of this chapel are the arms of Blencowe cut in stone ....", which was
in that part now demolished, but suggests that this was part of the 1590
rebuilding. Shown as complete but without roof on engravings of 1794 and 1822.
Listed for group value with Blencow Hall Farmhouse.
