Full description

Department of Environment, 1986, Hennock, 91 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV299469.

No 1 The Chapelry, Chudleigh knighton. Stone plaque in gable-wall of cottage at right-hand side of second storey. Probably 19C. The plaque, which is difficult to read in places, seems to carry a biblical quotation from the first epistle of John, chapter 3, verse 23: 'this is Gods commandment that we should believe on the name of his son Jesus Christ and love one another'. An 83-year old lady who has lived at No 3 The Chapelry all her life says the plaque has been in this position as long as she can remember. The building is not known to have been a chapel. The cottage itself is not of architectural interest.
