Listing Text

(South East Side)
No 1
TF 2421 1/114 29.12.50.

Circa 1230 in origins. A small building of brick and stone, with almost entirely
C19 exterior appearance, except for rounded shape. A hipped slate roof. Interior
consists of a single vaulted room on ground floor with 8 concentric arches with
chamfered wood beams. A spiral stone staircase in the wall leads to an upper
roof of similar proportions but without vaulting. Windows are, in both rooms,
of C19 date, the building having served as a house for a blacksmith. Formerly
it was part of the Priory, and is said to have been a lock-up for the monks.
The present name of the 'Prior's Oven' is derived from its shape, and has no
bearing on its former use.

Forms a group with Nos 15 to 17 (consec) Hall Place which are local interest
