Priory House (Council Offices), High Street south, Dunstable - Central Bedfordshire (UA)

C18 house on site of Priory guesthouse with C13 medieval undercroft and some pre-Georgian cellars. The undercroft, built in Totternhoe stone, is subject to complex structural movement and dampness issues. Excess surface water remains a significant agent of decay undermining the Totternhoe stone foundations and front wall causing further instability. Historic England High Street Heritage Action Grant awarded and Priory House will be repaired as part of this scheme.
