1527/5/8 ALFARDISWORTHY 14-FEB-58 Outbuilding, Formerly Chapel 25 metres north east of Lower Alsworthy Farmhouse (Formerly listed as: ALFARDISWORTHY CHAPEL)

GV II*



Chapel, now store. C15, subsequently much altered. Squared and coursed local stone, upper section cob, cement repairs, corrugated iron roof. Plan: 4-bay, single cell set into slope on north (rear elevation), entrance via blocked east window at first floor level and on south front at ground floor level. South front ground floor square headed opening with wooden lintel and plank door, probably C19/C20 on site of original opening. West gable end relieving arch of thin fieldstone, the head of the east window, tympanum filled with cob, wooden doorframe of indeterminate date. Interior: wooden wallplate running length of north wall, 2 and a half pairs of moulded arch-braced trusses, moulded collar purlins, bosses removed, apices renewed, 2 tiers of curved wind braces in south-east corner, evidence of some smoke blackening on original rafters. The east wall has splayed out and the unmoulded east face of the eastern-most truss was originally flush with the wall. Ground floor, only accessible in part at time of survey but appeared to contain corbels or brackets on east wall that originally flanked the east window. No evidence visible of the cill of this window. Blocked window opening partially visible on south wall. There are references to the chapel here in 1315 in the records of Torre abbey who held the advowson. To the north-west rises a spring which had a reputation as a Holy Well although its healing properties are unrecorded. (D.Seymour, Torre Abbey, 1977)
