Details

SEMINGTON DEVIZES ROAD ST 96 SW (off north side) 5/189 Barn approximately 75m north-west of Littleton Wood Farm GV II

Chapel, now barn. Probably late C16, altered. Rubble stone, Bridgwater tiled roof. Single-storey, east gable end has wide recessed chamfered doorway with hoodmould, three fragments of an egg and dart moulded cornice set across gable, probably reset, cyma-moulded plinth continues to left return. Blocked opening on left return and remains of another opening on right return. West gable end blocked window. Interior contains a shell-headed niche, possibly c1600 and fragments of heavily-moulded cornice or architrave, also-the right hand jamb of a stone Tudor-arched fireplace. Heavy spine beam and joists unchamfered. C19 two-bay roof with raking struts between tie-beam and principals. A curious building; some or all of the interior features have been reset, though it is not known whether they come from another structure or from different positions within this one. The blocked openings and later roof suggest a remodelling and possible change of use. No record exists of this ever being a chapel.
