No. 22
(TudhoeHall Farm)

Outbuilding, at one time Roman Catholic chapel. Early C17 with C19 alterations.
Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins and ashlar dressings; pantiled roof.2
low storeys, 6 wide bays; north elevation towards farmhouse has 2 boarded
doors, under chamfered lintel, and 2-light stone-mullioned window, with
chamfered reveal, at east end; other, C19, openings on first floor are blocked
and have projecting stone sills. Roof has ridge ventilator at west end.

Continuation at right-angles to main range too much altered to be of interest.
Interior shows re-used pseudo-C17 panelling, re-sited from a local church;
formerly held altar rail and steps from time of use as Catholic chapel,
probably in late C18 by group of students who eventually formed Ushaw College;
present owner reports the rail was there in his childhood.
