3/149 St Leonards Cottage (north) -


Cottage formerly chapel. Late C15 or early C16, converted to cottage probably in C18 or early C19. Stone rubble walls roughly coursed with a little cob at the top of the front wall. Thatch roof hipped to left end, gabled to right. Brick axial stack. Plan: originally probably single cell chapel open to the roof, its plan was completely altered by conversion into a cottage of 2 rooms, the left-hand room heated, with an outbuilding beyond the stack. The building may have been extended to the left of this at the time since its original roof structure does not continue all the way along. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1-window front of circa early C20 2-light casements to left of centre on each floor, the 1st floor one is a half dormer with small gable in the thatch above. C20 plank door to right. All these openings have flat stone arches over. C19 plank door to outbuilding to left. Rear elevation has the reveals and chamfered granite surround for an original window on the ground floor to centre. The central mullion and most of the head has gone but evidently there were arched lights. Further to the left is evidence of a blocked doorway. C19 2-light casement on 1st floor to left of centre. Interior: the only surviving original feature is a wagon roof on the first floor with moulded ribs and chamfered wooden wall-plate. This is a very rare survival of a building which can be identified as a late medieval chapel and forms a very interesting group with the adjacent house (q.v). In the mid C19 parts of stone tombs or graves were dug up in the ground to the west of the building.
