2/108 The Priory
House. C14 origins, altered and extended C17 and circa 1800. Part sandstone
rubble with brick dressings, part timber-framed with painted brick infill;
slate roofs with bridge ridge end stacks. It is of half H-shaped plan with
the wings extending to the west and an external rubble chimney at the north
end of the main range. During the C17 it was probably heightened and an
additional wing added to the north. Two storeys and attic. Framing: north-
west wing has a collar and tie-beam truss with three struts and a V-strut
in the apex at its gable end. North wing has three rows of panels from sill
to wall-plate. East front elevation: three bays. Windows in the outer bays
have narrow timber lintels and there are large 16-pane sashes on the ground
floor and smaller 9-pane sashes on the first floor. The central first floor
window has a round-arched brick head and a 6-pane window. The central entrance
has a gabled timber porch on timber posts, a doorway with a moulded architrave
and a 6-panelled door (four panels are raised and fielded, the central two have
been glazed). Attic lights at south gable end. The north and south walls of
the south-west wing each have a blocked C14 pointed window and there is a
further blocked medieval opening at the gable end of the north-west wing.
The north wing has a C17 diamond-mullioned window of four lights at its gable
end. Lean-to additions to north-west and north-east. The building is said
to have originally belonged to Leominster Priory. (RCHM, Herefs III, p 188,
item 4; BoE, p 293).
