Duke of Cornwall Public House
(Formerly Listed as:
ST EDMUND STREET
The Duke of Cornwall Public House)
Public house. C17 fabric, refaced late C18, late C19 display
front. Stone, rendered and scribed front, slate roof.
The building forms part of a larger C17 group returning to
Maiden Street and Custom House Quay; the external evidence
remains in the coped gable to the right.
2 storeys, 2 windows; at first floor are 2 large tripartite
8:12:8-pane sashes with flush mullions and boxes, under
stopped label moulds, but without sills, above a late C19
public house front in a pilaster surround with shallow fascia
and cornice. A central 6-panel door on 1 step is flanked by a
2-light and a 3-light window with thin mullions and slightly
rounded heads, with sill and stall-riser; to the left is a
further panelled, part-glazed door on a step. The wider
expanse of wall to the right reflects the position of the
internal fireplaces. The gable is coped, on a prominent
kneeler, and a brick stack has been raised to clear the higher
Guildhall (qv) adjoining.
INTERIOR: early interiors have not survived.
This group, including the Ship Inn, Maiden Street (qv), was
constructed in good ashlar, and with mullioned casements, but
the Duke of Cornwall now looks like an C18 building from the
(RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 349).
