SS 40 NE
7/89 Outbuilding immediately to north-
- east of Upcott Barton
Outbuilding possibly former chapel. Early C15 remodelled in C17. Cob and rubble
walls. Gable-ended slate roof.
Plan: rectangular 1-room plan with no evidence of a fireplace. The roof structure
ceiling beams and the 1st floor window date from the C17 suggesting that the
building was remodelled then and possibly if it had been a chapel its function
changed and it was made into 2 storeys.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical front with 4-centred hollow chamfered granite
medieval doorway to right of centre. Above it is large inserted loading hatch. To
the right of that is C17 3-light ovolo-moulded wooden mullion window. In left
gable-end is original 2-light wooden mullion winodw with trefoiled heads - the
dividing mullion has been removed.
Interior: C17 roof trusses with straight principals onto which the collars have
been halved with notched lap-joints C17 chamfered ceiling beams (the ist floor has
been removed).
This is an unusual survival of an early non-domestic building where the suggestion
that it was a chapel seems likely.
