SW 73 NE MYLOR

3/184 Cordys Close (formerly listed as 30.5.67 Old Chapel at Carclew)

GV II*

Chapel, now private house. Circa late C18. Granite ashlar front with dressed granite details, otherwise dressed coursed sedimentary stone. Hipped grouted scantle slate roof with parapet to front and polygonal roof over canted rostrum or alter projection to rear. Single cell aisless plan (now subdivided) with entrance to middle of front (south) wall, and canted projection to middle of rear wall. Curious mixture of Gothic and classical styles. Single storey. Symmetrical 3-bay south front. Plinth, granite ashlar coursed into weathered diagonal corner buttresses; bays punctuated by fluted consoles under Gothic style cornice with 4 obelisk pinnacles as finials over blind parapet with cross bracing and quatrefoils. Central doorway with original 6-panel door with trefoil- headed upper and lower panels and quatrefoils to middle panels. Moulded 2-centred arched doorway with original fanlight with intersecting glazing bars over transom. Within the tympanum of the doorway is what appears to be an eroded inscription. Jambs, with moulded bases, are broken forward. Transom, with lozenge and diamond recesses, continues as impost band. Consoles to lower part of stepped and raised segmental cornice like an open pediment. Flanking window openings have moulded architraves and 2-centred arches with original hornless sashes and intersecting glazing bars to tympana. These, and 4 similar window to rear have much original crown glass. Rear is symmetrical with central canted 3-light bay, with blind centre light, and window to either side. Interior remodelled during the Second World War when partitions and attic floor were inserted, however, niches survive to east and west walls and fine ceiling cornice, with Gothic style detail, survives in the attic. This is a very fine and complete C18 chapel, particularly notable for its unusual mixture of Gothic and classical style.
