SO 38 SW
- Church of St. Mary

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.
