b(2). Chapel, forming part of the Convent of Our Lady of Charity at the S. end of the parish, was formerly a private chapel at Old Longworth in the parish of Lugwardine. The building was long used as a barn but was restored in 1860 and removed and re-erected at the Convent in 1869–70; it now forms part of the convent-chapel. It was probably first built in the latter part of the 14th century, and an engraving in the Gent's Mag. of 1792 shows its appearance before restoration.
Architectural Description—The Chapel (40½ ft. by 16½ ft.) as re-erected stands S.S.W. and N.N.E. and has a S. window of three cinque-foiled lights with tracery in a segmental-pointed head. In the E. wall are four windows, each of two cinque-foiled lights with a quatrefoil in a two-centred head. The other walls have no ancient features. Re-set in the porch is a window of two trefoiled ogee lights in a square head.
a(5). Pomona Corner, cottage at the cross-roads, 1,220 yards N. of the church, is of L-shaped plan with the wings extending towards the N. and E. The roof is thatched and some of the framing is exposed.
