3/161 The Grove Inn
Public house incorporating post office. Late C17. Painted rendered stone rubble and
cob. Hipped thatch roof. Axial brick stack and rendered stack at right end.
Demolished stack to rear wing.
Plan: L-shaped on plan. Interior much altered in C20 obscuring original plan, but
appears to have consisted of 3 rooms in line, the 2 rooms to left end heated by axial
stack. It is possible that there is a blocked entrance in front of the stack forming
a 3-room and lobby entry plan. The rear wing to the right end appears to be integral
to the main range and probably originally functioned as a kitchen. The front left
hand room now the post office may have been at one time in separate occupation. C20
flat roofed single-storey extension to rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 5-window range. Two 3-light casements. 6 panes per light at
left end above 4 panelled door with similar casement to right. Right side has all 6-
paned sashes, the central upper storey sash replaced with C20, above 4-panelled door.
Interior: all 3 fireplaces to the main rooms have ovolo-moulded and scroll-stopped
lintels. Similarly moulded and stopped doorway between the 2 left-hand rooms.
Otherwise interior much altered in c20. Roof trusses are probably late C17 and have
pegged 'A' frame trusses with deep protruding pegs and pegged halved and lapped
