Listing Text

No 31


Probably the remains of a 15th century open hall. Once the Plough Inn, now used as
booking office with flat above. Two storeys. Ground floor rendered, first floor and
gable, both oversailing, covered with creosoted weatherboard. Shop windows and door,
single casement window of 4 lights on first floor. Tiled roof. A chimney of small
16th century bricks and intricate construction - probably a later insertion - occupied
a large proportion of the interior, having a large open fireplace with wooden
bressumer on the first floor. There is possibly a similar fireplace on the ground
floor which the owner hopes to reveal by removal of modern panelling. The chimney
finishes in an elaborate brickwork triple stack. Upright jowled corner posts and
curved braces visible internally.
