Clare Priory, Ashen Road, Clare, Sudbury
Clare Priory is a Grade I listed building in Sudbury. It was established in 1248 and is one of the oldest religious houses in England. Today, it is a religious retreat for guests to stay.
The house contains several of the original features, including the vaulted porch, the little Cloister with the Shrine, and impressive stone and stained glass work throughout the house.
KEIM’s initial site visit was in 2017 as the works were to be painted in sections. The gable end to the left of the chimney breast had areas of lime render replaced and small repairs filled.
KEIM Soldalit Fixativ was applied onto the newly lime render to equalise surface porosity. KEIM Soldalit-ME was applied, due to the tree canopies around the property, in a Suffolk Pink colour (K8045).
In 2020, KEIM specified KEIM Soldalit Grob to cover textural variations on new areas of the building, the front and near right side elevations. KEIM Soldalit-ME was then applied, completing the full decoration in Suffolk Pink.
