8/109 The Chantry

Former manorial house or priest's house; now detached house. C15;
C17 or C18 addition; restoration and alterations of 1853. Coursed
rubble marlstone with limestone ashlar dressings; rubble chimneys;
stone slate roof. Two-storey; projecting 2-storey rear wing with
cellar. Front: scattered fenestration of various dates, mostly
resulting from 1853 restoration. Off-centre moulded 4-centred
arched doorway with quatrefoils in spandrels and bold hoodmould
with shield stops; pointed-arched former staircase window over
with C14 style tracery and small parapet gable above. Three 3-
light moulded C19 mullioned casements to upper floor with trefoil
heads. Three-light ground floor casement to right of doorway with
Tudor-arched heads and to left, beyond C20 inserted casements, 4-
light in similar style. At extreme left-hand end large blocked C15
moulded 4-centred arched opening, probably original entrance;
fragment of moulded string course above. Parapet gable at each end
of building, north-east end having projecting chimney stack.
Single window fenestration to south-west end: C20 ground floor
casement with C19 three-light to upper floor with trefoil heads,
and possibly original small single-light to attic with trefoil
head. Rear: wing projects to left with leaded casement
fenestration having timber lintels in end wall, and C19 trefoil-
headed casements on south-west side. Remains of projecting lateral
chimney stack to rear of main range, now cut down and with C20
casement inserted at upper floor level. To right of chimney, C19
moulded 4-centred arched doorway with hoodmould; 2 upper floor 3-
light C19 trefoil-headed casements to right above continuous string
Interior has large moulded Tudor-arched stone fireplace in hall,
possibly late C15. Roof is 5-bay arched braced collar-truss type,
mostly concealed by present ceiling, with moulding on inner edge of
bracing pegged to principal rafters. Upper floor is probably an
insertion. Called The Chantry since C16, but position suggests a
manorial use, or possibly a use as a priest's house. In early C19
was used as a school house.
