Black Dog Public House
Inn. Late C16 and C17. Rendered, some timber-framing, slate
roof. The later front range, in St Mary Street backs on 2
ranges with a narrow central courtyard, and the whole is now
enclosed to the rear by buildings in Charlotte Place.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, attic and basement. The front has a wide
flush gable to the left with a 3-light stone mullioned
casement under a stopped label course, above a canted C19
oriel with slated hipped roof and plain sashes to pilaster
mullions, with small panelled skirt. Ground floor has a
display window. To the right the eaves roof has two 4-pane
sashes at each level, in reveals and with moulded architraves;
the ground floor lights are almost square.
To the left is a fine panelled door in a pilaster doorcase
with frieze and cornice; the floor is below present pavement
level. Plinth, and brick stack to each gable end. The face
gable has a saddle-back coping with a finial base, on modelled
kneelers. The rear is concealed by later buildings, but there
is an access through a narrow passageway from Charlotte Place
to an early panelled door.
INTERIOR: the ground floor, lower than the street, is of low
pitch. At the rear, left, is a tight wooden winder staircase,
and a wall in large stone block, incorporating a chamfered
beam. The front right room has a beam with rough chamfer, and
there are various early joists. The rear left has a wide
bressumer fireplace with lamb's tongue stops on chamfered
stone jambs, and there is a stone 4-light recessed
hollow-mould mullion casement, no longer on an external wall.
The rear courtyard is stone-paved.
The first floor has (RCHME) a bolection-mould fireplace
surround, above which are three C17 plaster panels, and the
previous list records a jettied first floor, and a roof
structure with cambered collars.
A rare survival of its period in this street; the small
vertical scale is noticeable in the context of the surrounding
C19 buildings. It was built as an inn in the late C16.
