Scheduled Ancient Monument. In the garden of the farmhouse to the north-east of
the house are the Ruins of the Chapter House, which is wrongly described on the

History of Vest Sussex, which copies the latter, as the Chapel. This also dates
from the mid C13. It is a Rectangular building with 3 lancet ws in the east wall
and one blocked lancet in the north and south walls. The west wall is made up of
an arcaded entrance. This has 2 painted openings each of 2 divisions and a pointed
archway between them with thin clustered shafts and dogtooth moulding to the soffit.
