SX 68 NE CHAGFORD MILL STREET, (south side),

20.2.52 railings to north-east
Hotel on site of cloth-making mill. Mid C19. Plastered granite stone rubble;
granite or brick stacks with plastered brick chimney shafts; slate roof.
Plan: Hotel with a rambling, basically F-shaped, plan. The main block is set back
from the street and faces north-east with an entrance block projecting forward from
it. A crosswing projects forward from the right (north-western) end, the end of
which retains a short distance parallel with the main block. Most of the rooms are
heated by a series of axial and gable-end stacks. The main rooms are mostly on the
upper floors with service rooms on the ground floor, in basements and rear outshots.
It is built down a hillslope. The left uphill end is 2 storeys, most is 3 storeys
and the right downhill end includes basements.
Exterior: the main front has a 3:4 window front with the entrance block between.
Most are horned 12-pane sashes. The lower windows have ornate stucco architraves
which includes foliate enrichment of the moulded entablature. The upper windows have
low segmental heads with a stucco keystone fashioned as a human mask and flanked by
radiating bands of Vitruvian enrichment. The left section is symmetrical about a 9-
panel door with fanlight. The right section is basically symmetrical and divided
into bays by panelled pilasters. The narrower outer bays here contain tall round-
headed sashes with Y-tracery glazing bars with enriched stucco architraves. The
first floor windows of the central bay have enriched pedimented heads and there are a
series of stucco roundels at first floor level. The gable end of the entrance block
has 6-panel door with fanlight with a heavy projecting moulding above articulted as
a porch. Above this a stucco laurel wreath. The courtyard side of the crosswing has
a 3:2 window front in the same style as the rest.
Interior not inspected.
From the front corner of the crosswing railings extend south-eastwards enclosing the
forecourt. They are cast iron spear-headed railing set into granite ashlar coping.
Granite ashlar monolithic gate posts are square in section with rounded tops.
