- II

House. Probably C17 origins but much remodelled in early C19. Plastered walls.
Gable ended slate roof.
Plan: probably only part of the original house which must formerly have extended at
either or both ends. It now comprises a large room with through passage to its
right. C19 or C20 rear additions.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of early C19 16-pane sashes.
Contemporary reeded doorcase at right-hand end with dentilled cornice and panelled
reveals. Fielded 6-panel door.
Interior: the ground and first floors appear featureless although some may be
concealed. Surviving in the loft is an early C19 segmental plaster ceiling with
simple cornice moulding.
In the early moulding. was used as a meeting hall, established in 1821 as "the
Public Subscription rooms" and in 1853 became used as the court of Petty Sessions
with some cells being built on at the rear.
