The monument consists of an undercroft, a vault or crypt under a church or chapel, dating to the medieval period. The five surviving undercrofts of the Cloister Hall are rubble vaulted and underlie the U-shaped range of domestic quarters of St Mary’s College founded in 1377. Several original openings survive. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval ecclesiastical organisation. 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. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
