No 1 (White Hart Hotel
and the Assembly Rooms


Hotel incorporating former assembly rooms, at street junction. Early C19.
Smooth rendered, slate roofs. Two wide ranges with low-pitched gables to
street, returns down Poundwell Street to wide opening to internal courtyard.
Hotel, left, is 2 storeys, 3 windows; at ground floor tripartite sashes with
central 16-pane flanked by diamond-set bars and at first floor three 16-pane
sashes, all to plain reveals. Central 6-panel flush door with diamond-pane
overlight in pilaster surround with Greek key ornament to frieze, small flat
hood, panelled reveals. Front contained in plain pilasters to small plinth, and
full-width pediment closed by plat-band. Ridge stacks set back centrally, and
smaller eaves stack to left. To Poundwell Street are four 16-pane sashes at
first floor over three the same, and centre one over cellar access; to left a
broad elliptical opening with keystone containing two heavy plank doors.
Assembly rooms, to right in Church Street, 2 storeys, 3 windows similar to White
Hart, but three 4-pane over two 16-pane flanking central 6-panel flush door to
plain overlight and simple pilaster doorcase. Back of this unit has a 9-pane
sash in a slate-hung wall. An important visual element at this street crossing,
little altered externally. In the pavement in front of this building is set a
large granite lintel in basket-handle form with central ogee curve, probably
brought from the demolished Champernowne House (see also Steps and archway at
Old Traine East).
