24/46 No.17 and adjacent
building to west, now a
15.4.69 wing of Lord Crewe Arms
GV (formerly listed as House
adjoining Lord Crewe Arms
Terrace of 6 houses, formerly monastic building, remodelled mid-C18. Mostly
rubble, with dressings; stone slate roofs. 2 storeys, 8 bays. Vertical-
panelled doors to left of bay 1, between bays 2 and 3 (in raised stone surround),
between bays 4 and 5, pair between bays 6 and 7, and between bays 7 and 8.
Various sash windows, (some renewed) most in hollow-chamfered surrounds, some
C19 and some of earlier work re-set. Bay 8 windows in C18 block surrounds.
Remains of a range of 3 large windows with double hollow-chamfered jambs on 1st
floor of bays 4 and 5. 5 ridge stacks (one rebuilt in brick) and right end
stack; roof hipped to left.
Left return shows 2 small windows, the lower with glazing bars, in C18 stone
surrounds. Rear elevation shows old projecting stack, and at far right blocked
2-light window with ovolo-moulded surround.
Interior much altered. No. 17 has a C17 ground floor fireplace with a flat-
pointed head in a square frame; a larger arched fireplace on the floor above
is now covered over.
The terrace appears to be the monastic south range, much remodelled;
conventionally this would have the frater at 1st floor level - the remains of
large C15 (?) windows on the south suggest an important apartment here.
