Listing Text

SJ 51 NW UFFINGTON C.P. -

1/73 Chapel to Sundorne
- Castle

- II

Chapel. Early C19, possibly incorporating parts of re-used medieval work.
Red brick and sandstone ashlar, tiled roof and verge parapets. Simple
rectangular plan, unusually entered in the centre of the north side. This
elevation facing towards the complex of farm buildings (q.v.) is in red
brick with a coved plaster C17-style eaves band; small gabled porch with
round-arch entrance and boarded door to otherwise blind walls; by contrast,
the south or approach elevation appears more authentically medieval in
ashlar and of 3 bays on a moulded plinth, divided by gabletted 2-stage
buttresses surmounted by crocketed pinnacles and with a crenellated parapet
between; each bay is fenestrated by labelled pointed 2-light windows of
Decorated style. Interior: arch braces to collared trusses, double purlins
with cusped windbraces; crested ogee inner arch to east window, encaustic
tile floor, stained glass to east window only. The chapel was formerly
connected to a structure now demolished to the west; a blocked gallery
arch and paired entrances remain.
