Counter-roll of Adam of Chesterfield, controller of the king's works at the palace of Westminster and Tower of London, for the expenditure of Thomas of Stapleford, lately the king's clerk of works there, with a store account.

Physical description: A roll of ten membranes, sewn end-to-end; mm. 1–1d has suffered considerable damage by tearing and staining, with some loss of text; the same is true, to a lesser extent of mm. 2–2d; the rest of the roll is in good condition, and wholly legible. The roll is written on one side, with the store account on mm. 1d–2d.

Scope of transcription: Entries relating to St Stephen's chapel, including the possible construction of an entrance to it and a cloister, making a masons’ lodge, and making stalls, painting and glazing, as well as works in another chapel in the palace.
