Church Loft, High Street, West Wycombe
Church Loft, High Street, West Wycombe
Church Loft was built in the 15th century and pilgrims stayed in here as a guest of the church. Since then it has been the village jail, stocks, and recent years a venue for events.
The building is timber framed, with later brick in-fill, and the upper floor oversails both front and rear. The left hand side is an arch to Church Lane and contains the village lock-up and whipping post.
The Church Loft has a bell turret and a particularly fine clock (dated 1668) overhanging the street. The clock mechanism remains within.
Under the archway a plaque reads - Church Loft Clock c1670. This clock was renovated in 2003 in memory of Peter Harris, who wound the clock daily for 50 years, 1950-2000
