Full Record - Norton St Philip, Farleigh Hungerford Castle

LocationNorton St Philip, Farleigh Hungerford Castle, Somerset
Grid referenceST 801 577
DescriptionThis chapel was once the parish church, but later became the chapel of Farleigh Hungerford Castle. The walls are stone, and thought to have been built in the 14th century. The present roof consists of five bays with moulded ties and collars and two purlins, and sits on wall plates which were thought to incorporate the remains of an earlier roof, although this study was unable to support that. The roof is known to have fallen into disrepair in the 18th century and one truss and its associated purlins are clearly replacements. One timber in this renewed section shows a ring-width pattern suggesting that its parent tree had been pollarded. Dating commissioned by English Heritage. M. Bridge, 'Tree-ring analysis of timbers from St Leonard's Chapel, Farleigh Hungerford Castle, Norton St Philip, Somerset', CfA Report forthcoming.
