CLUN C.P. HIGH STREET (South side) Nos. 17 and 19

GV II*

House, latterly house and shop, now shop. Reputedly C12, probably C13 or C14, remodelled in early C19. Timber framed, of cruck construction; refaced and eaves raised in rendered coursed rubble; slate roof. Former hall house, probably of 3 or 4 framed bays. Integral brick and stone end stack to left. 4-window front; first floor glazing bar sashes; 2 ground floor plate-glass C20 shop windows to left flanking 6 flush- panelled door (top 4 panels glazed) with reeded architrave and mid-to- late C19 gabled wooden porch; mid-to-late C19 shop front to right consisting of 2 plate-glass shop windows flanking C20 glazed door with rectangular overlight and panelled-pilastered surround supporting fascia and cornice; boarded door to far right. Interior: former hall house plan survives with left-hand door to former through-passage, and surviving chamfered-lintel doorway to former service-end with basement beneath; 2 surviving full cruck trusses, the large former open hall truss visible on first floor with continuous chamfer to blade, arch- braces and collar with V-struts above; Alcock apex-type E; much smoke blackening. The former large later-inserted stack in the second bay from the East was removed in the late 1970's, when the crucks were 'discovered'. Despite its unpromising exterior, this building is Graded II* on account of its early and relatively complete structure. Alcock, Pp.96 and 143.
