4/82 Barn about 60 yards south-
east of Chapel House Farm
10.4.54 (formerly listed as barn
100 yards south-east of
Hunt End Farm)
Barn. Early Cl7 with mid-C19 alterations. Handmade red brick with sandstone
ashlar dressings, quoins and plinth; plain and machine-tiled roof with parapets
(now partly replaced) at gable ends. Rectangular three-bay plan aligned roughly
north/south. Two levels. Main west elevation: left and central bays have two
splayed-mullioned 2-light windows; these flank a semi-circular headed archway
with keyblock and a continuous hood mould with returns runs above door and
windows. Right bay has square-headed archway with moulded sandstone head and
jambs. Attic lights in gable ends. Interior: roof has two intermediate collar
and tie-beam trusses with two collars and struts. Subsidiary scissor braces
and two tiers of purlins. The building is known locally as "the Roman Chapel"
but there appears to be no evidence to substantiate its medieval or earlier
origins or former ecclesiastical use. It stands on a moated site and most
probably is a surviving outbuilding or wing of a large Jacobean house (now
demolished). (BoE, p 249). Chapel House Farmhouse is not included in this list.
