2/116 The Priory - - II

Detached house. Early C19 remodelling and enlargement of a C17 house. The older parts are of plastered cob; the rest rendered brick with lath and plaster outer walls to 1st floor; 2-span gabled-end slate roofs throughout. Probably formerly a 2-room, through-passage plan house with rear wing (perhaps a barn), with a front range added in the C19 which runs parallel to the early house, thus forming a double-depth plan, each range has separate gable-ended roof, and each heated by external end stacks with off-sets; end stack to rear wing; all stacks with brick shafts. 2 storeys. - Front: (facing south away from Greenway): symmetrical 3-window range; the 1st floor is hung with variously shaped tiles arranged in formal patterns; tripartite 4:12:4 pane hornless sash windows flank a smaller central 16-pane hornless sash window. Ground floor: central doorway blocked; to either side of this a glazed garden door with traceried semi-circular top light, flanked by narrower 4-pane pointed lights, all recessed under a depressed arch. Rear: main range with two 2-light casement windows to 1st floor; another to ground floor (originally of 4 lights) to the left of the leanto glazed porch set in the angle formed by this range and the rear wing, with a glazed, latticed pointed door. Interior: a few features of the C17 house are visible including a deeply chamfered and unstopped cross ceiling beam to the left of the entrance hall; some late C17 or early C18 fielded panel doors, one with H hinges. Otherwise early C19 joinery, including a fireplace with reeded surround. Reference: photograph of the house in circa 1890, Ursula W Brighouse, Woodbury, A View from the Beacon, (1981), p.179
