4/94 Former Chapel approximately 10 - metres South of Brightley Farmhouse

GV II

Outbuilding, reputedly formerly a chapel. Medieval, much altered probably in C19 and C20. Local stone rubble walls considerably heightened in brick. Gable ended corrugated iron roof. Plan: Single cell plan with original entrance in right gable end. Probably in C19 doorways were inserted on front and rear walls but the building is likely to have ceased being a chapel long before this; in the C20 the roof was raised. Single storey. Central cart entrance under a pentice roof supported on wooden posts which extends along the front wall. Original doorway, now blocked, is in right gable end and constructed of dressed granite voussoirs in a round-headed arch with dressed granite jambs. Interior: no original features survive and the roof structure is probably C20. Brightley is the site of a religious house founded in 1133 by Richard Fitz Baldwin and occupied by a superior and twelve monks who arrived from Waverley Abbey to build a new monastery. They abandoned Brightly in 1141 and were given a new site at Ford in East Devon which subsequently became Ford Abbey. Source: W G Hoskins - Devon
