12/37 No. 12, The Priory

7.5.54 - II

House, formerly union workhouse. 1836, with alterations of c.1900. Possible earlier core. 2 storeys. Rendered masonry walls with parapets and a Dutch gable at either end of the front elevation. Slated roofs. Mullioned and transomed casements of c.1900. 4-panelled arched partly-glazed entrance door. The doorway has a reset C15 surround of limestone, arched and hollow-chamfered. The label above is heavily moulded with a carved frieze bearing two shields, one flanked by angels, the other by lions. The doorway is believed to have been removed from the house of the Cellarer of St. Edmunds Abbey; this may have been the earlier range (said to have been constructed with oak timber) which was demolished c.1897, at the front of the present house. A rear wing of 1836, gault brick with slated roof, has horizontally sliding casements on the north side.
