Listing Text

ST 94 SE
(east side)
4/7 Outbuilding at The Gatehouse
(formerly listed as St Andrew's
11.9.68 Chapel)
Outbuilding, probably originally stables with loft over. C16.
Banded flint and limestone, single-roman tiled roof. Gable end to
road. Two-storey, 2-window south front. Ribbed door in Tudor-
arched staff-moulded architrave to right of centre, 3-light hollow-
chamfered mullioned window with arched lights and hoodmould either
side. Planked loft door with moulded jambs over doorway. Left
return facing road has blocked 3-light mullioned window with arched
lights and hoodmould to ground and first floor, blocked single-
light to gable, saddleback coped verge with scrolled volutes at
eaves. Rear has C19 casement, blocked single-light and loft door
with moulded jambs as front. Right return has folding garage
doors with C20 round-arched head, rubble stone buttress to right.
Interior has loft over west end, roof with collar and tie-beam
trusses and also some arch-braced collar trusses.
This building is known as a chapel but there is no evidence to
suggest that it was ever used as such; it is more likely to have
been a service building to the main house (The Gatehouse q.v.).
