2/19 Alnesbourne Priory
Country Club (formerly
16.3.66 listed as Barn to Priory

- II

Clubhouse, formerly barn. The building incorporates a little mediaeval
walling of the church of the Priory of Alnesbourne (founded c,1200). The barn
was built in early C17 and converted to a clubhouse in c.1970. Mainly C17 red
brick walling, but the 4th bay is timber-framed and weather-boarded. Against
the south wall is a series of square buttresses of red brick; against the west
gable is another, similar. The raking buttresses on the north side were added
in C19. Areas of mediaeval random limestone and septaria rubble walling on
north and west sides, including some dressed ashlar stones reused as rubble;
on the north wall is a section of freestone buttressing. Plaintiled roof with
2 tiers of butt-purlins, the upper tier wind-braced. Apart from 3 rows of
ventilation slots in west gable, all openings are C20. Alterations of c.1970
include a pantiled lean-to extension to the south and a pantiled and gabled
porch to the north. The parish church of Hallowtree was alienated to
Alnesbourne Priory in 1301, but the Priory was "ruinous" by 1514. It is the
ruins of the church which are apparently incorporated in the present building;
for this reason it is included despite C20 alterations.
