3/78 Massey Garth and Chantry



2 houses. C18 and C19 with C13 remains. Coursed gritstone, Westmorland
slate and C20 pantile roofs. 2 storeys, 3 parallel ranges, the central
range with C13 features being part of Massey Garth, the rear range belonging
to The Chantry house, both with lower eaves. Massey Garth: 3 bays. C19
facade with C20 porch and 16-pane sashes. Chantry House: 3 bays with
central round-arched doorway with hollow mouldings and C20 columns flanked
by 20-pane sash windows with side-sliding sashes over. Interior: the
partition wall between front and rear ranges of Massey Garth has a blocked
round-headed arch with paired attached columns. A blocked round-headed arch
also in the rear wall of the rear range, but visible only from Chantry
House. The structure of the middle range is therefore probably the remains
of the house of a Chantry Priest attached to Spofforth church (qv).
