Monument record 0240503000 - DOORWAY AT OLD CHANTRY CHAPEL
- None recorded
Type and Period (1)
- ARCHITECTURAL FRAGMENT (12th Century - 1100 AD to 1199 AD)
HOSPITAL PROBABLY BUILT IN LATE C12, FROM WHICH THE FINE NORMAN DOOR IN S WALL OF THE PRESENT BUILDING REMAINS (B9).
NB; 'HOSPITAL OF ST JOHN THE BAPTIST' MENTIONED ONLY ONCE, IN HUNDRED ROLLS (1279); POSSIBLE THAT ST JOHN THE BAPTIST'S CHAPEL WAS THE HOSPITAL'S CHAPEL, BUT THIS IS CONJECTURE (B3).
Building recording carried out by Northamptonshire Archaeology in January 2009 suggests that the doorway is as originally intended and has not been rebuilt in this position. See report for detail (B11).
