10/98 Sun Cottage (formerly listed as Joiners 4.2.69 shop - Chapel on OS)


Marked as Sunniside Cottage on Ordnance Survey Map. Medieval chapel, now house. Possibly C13, with C19 alterations and C20 alterations and extensions. Rubble, C20 pantile roof. single storey approximately 3 bays. Quoins. All external openings are of C20 date. Interior: 4 medieval roof trusses (3 exposed) of angled principals with arched collars, supported on corbels. In the east wall, to right of C20 fireplace, piscina moved from the conventional position in south-east corner, with triangular hood carved from one piece of stone, thought to be of French origin. West doorway now gives access to bathroom. The chapel has been identified as that of a small cell, established at Moulton in the C13, of the French Abbey of Bagard, which was highly esteemed by the Earl of Richmond. Desite the dissolution of the English properties of alien priorities by the Crown in 1414, the Chapel was still used for services in the early C15, and presumably continued so until the Reformation (article on Moulton in Scorton Grammar School Magazine of December 1925). Recorded to have been granted by the Crown in 1586 to John Awbrey and John Radcliffe (VCH; i, p197), and to have been used as a carpenter's shop in the late C19. Bulmer History, Topography and Directory of North Yorkshire (1890), p 519.
