alterations for William, 17th Lord Stourton. Brown and cream brick, partly
rendered, Westmorland slate roof. 3 bay nave, single bay crossing with
transepts and single bay chancel. Entrance is from The Mansion at west end.
Windows throughout are lancets with Gothic-glazing-bar sashes. At east
end 3 blind lancet arches and circular panel above; gable with stone coping
topped by cross. Interior; late Gothick-style stucco with 4-centred arch
vaulting and blind lancet panels. Central eastern panel contains C19
crucifixion; C20 wooden reredos and fittings. West end has balcony leading
from former Lord Stourton's bedroom. The building is being thoroughly
repaired and restored, much of the interior is therefore not visible. The
west end, stuccoed, is shown in a drawing of the late C18 house and is
described as the chapel room (part of the dining room) and chapel. See
