Another option as Toby mentioned is use 1" batten and put a new ceiling in.

crap google image but you get the idea.

You'd lose 100mm odd of head height.. Granted it would improve heat retention but its a mega bodge surely its easier and cheaper to remove the old coving than splashing out on plaster board, timber and labour to lower the celling?
