Listing Text

Bannut Tree Chapel
[formerly listed as
Bannut Tree Cottage
(including Chapel)]
ST 8599 6/46A 30.5.51.

Traditionally, at least from C18, a Chapel of Ease to Avening. Mediaeval,
possibly C14, altered and converted (stable in late C18, dwelling in
later Cl9).
One and a half storeys, rubble with Cotswold stone roof. West gable end
has arched doorway and early C14 cusped piscina-window. Small window
in gable. South side has cusped window head to left and a 2 light window
with cusped ogee heads and flat lintel in chamfered surround under cornice.
Gabled dormer over. Lean-to to north. One and half storey modern extension
to south with gabled dormer over door and one window. The C14 tracery
is said to have come from Horsley church.
Interior: the central truss is very substantial and has slightly curving
bases onto the tie (ie only just an upper cruck). There is an aumbry
at the south-east end with a carved Jacobean-style oak door. The fireplace
is wooden with carved animals in relief (possibly early C16, clearly intended
for another purpose). Some imported C15 and later stained glass especially
in window heads. Shell and tile ornamental window jambs in south-west
