1156-0/3/168 Ewell Monastery The Abbey Tithe Barn


Former tithe barn, now chapel. C15 altered C20. Exterior stone
with tiled roof and C20 windows. On the south-west wall are 5
buttresses and a triangular tiled hood above 5 narrow windows
built into the original door opening towards the south-east.
On the north-west, where the building has been truncated, the
lower part of the wall is of stone and the roof comes down to
single storey eaves level to the north-east with a row of 7
narrow windows beneath a gable with tile-hanging above the
stone. South-west of this is a much smaller adjacent gable end
which is cement rendered above the stone. On the north-east
the whole facade is of stone with an entrance door to the
north-west and brick cloister arches masking it to the
south-east, above which is a stone-faced gabled roof
projection containing 4 narrow windows. The south-east facade
is also of stone above which the roof is hipped with larger
and smaller hips corresponding to the gables on the
north-west. To the south-west is a buttress surmounted by a
bell. Centrally a large porch with tiled lean-to roof and
entrance from the south-west. North-east of this a brick
projection which joins the C20 cloister which is not of
special interest.
Internally the barn is of 4 bays, aisled on both sides with
passing braces, upright posts with jowls, queenposts and
angled open struts, purlins and no ridgepiece except to one
end bay. Formerly the tithe barn to St Mary's Abbey, this
building is at present in separate occupation.
