Details Church meeting rooms (see also NJ90NW1315). Photographic recording was carried out by Cameron Archaeology in 2010 during an internal refit of the building. It was originally two-storey and a further storey has been added in brick forming an upper floor. Monitoring also in 2010 of two trenches dug into the cobbled yard for a new forestair recovered a small number of medieval pottery sherds from the soils, but no undisturbed archaeological deposits or features were uncovered. A new access through the garden wall to the rear (north) of 4 Chapel Court involved demolition of a 4m section of the north-south wall. This wall has a outer stone facing to west and east with a rubble core, all mortar bonded. The top of the wall tapers to one brick width, and fragments of 18th-19th century have been set into the top. Glass, pottery and roof tiles found during demolition of the wall section suggest that it was originally built in the 18th or 19th century, and later increased in height.
