1. (In the centre)
Hope & Anchor Hotel
SK 2853 2/29 24.10.50.


Early C19 ashlar to early C17 coursed stone rubble exposed in rear gabled
dormers; 3 storeys; 7 sash windows; small stuccoed Roman Doric cornice hood
porch. Left-hand wing, formerly with modern shop front, now has plain inn
windows. Plain eaves. C19 cast-iron inn-sign. Contains enriched oak overmantel
with fluted Ionic shafts (the volutes upside down) flanking a bolection
moulding around fireplace and supporting an enriched cornice on consoles
with panels enriched with fleurs-de-lys, unicorns, Tudor Rose, etc. Of
crude execution and date circa 1610. The entrance lobby contains a small
section of a moulded plaster ceiling of the same date. The history of the
house is problematical, but it is vaguely associated with the Governor when
Wirksworth had a penal settlement.
