From the National Heritage List for England:
'HIGH STREET 1. 1675A (West Side) No 39 SK 4374 1/12 25.2.66. (The Chantry) II 2. Medieval. It is said to have been a chantry founded by the Frecheville family or, alternatively, a chapel founded by the Musard family in the C13, but this has been disputed. Stone rubble; 2 storeys, with gabled end to road; 1 storey plus attic to right with 1 stone dormer; plain sashes, irregularly spaced; old stone slab roof. The interior has indications of massive timbering, particularly in the roof, where the timbers are oddly spaced out. A correct interpretation of the building architecturally would only be possible during a process of partial stripping out of later work. A number of skeletons were unearthed here in 1904. Unoccupied and much in need of repair at time of survey. Reference: Arthur Court, 'Staveley, my Native Town' 1948, with photograph.
