The monument consists of the remains of a house. The paddock known as the Chanter’s Orchard lies in the south west of the Close and formerly contained two houses of the members of the chapter. These were the Archdeacon of Carmarthen’s House in the eastern half and 'Guidon’s Place' in the western half. The paddock shows evidence for building platforms and land divisions. This paddock must retain the largely undisturbed archaeological remains of two of the houses of chapter members. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of settlement and domestic activity. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. A house may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
