CLUNBURY C.P. CLUNTON SO 38 SW 3/63 - Church of St. Mary GV II

Chapel-of-ease, 1870. Regularly coursed and dressed rock-faced limestone rubble with ashlar dressings; machine tile roof with ornamental cresting and iron cross to east gable end. Single cell comprising nave and chancel in one with west bellcote; north porch. North side has broad cusped lancet to east and paired broad cusped lancets to east of pointed doorway under bracketed gabled porch; continuous moulded cill band. Gabled west bellcote with single cusped opening housing bell. East window of 3 stepped broad cusped lancets. Interior: trussed rafter roof to nave and chancel; ashlar banding to rubblestone walls. Fittings and furnishings nearly all contemporary with construction of church including small octagonal font and 2 sedilia and piscina in south wall. Originally a dependent chapelry of Clun, Clunton became a chapel-of-ease to Clunbury when that became a separate parish from Clun in 1341. It is not clear, however, whether the present building occupies the site of the medieval chapel. D.H.S. Cranage, The Churches of Shropshire, Part 5. (1901), p. 395.
