The Great Northern
Public House and
adjoining coach house
to right
SE 0932 38/1093


Built as a railway hotel circa 1876-78. A surprisingly richly detailed
Italianate-Renaissance design for a conventional 3 bay 2-storey elevation of
this kind. Sandstone "brick" with finely masoned ashlar dressings. Plinth,
rusticated quoins, frieze and moulded eaves cornice. Gable end slate roof
with saddlestones and flanking chimneys with moulded cornices. The first
floor windows have moulded architrave surrounds and cambered heads with
archivolt arches. The central window architrave is eared with a faceted key-
stone to the arch. The ground floor windows have coupled arched lights, flanking
pilasters and dividing colonettes with foliate caps, archivolt arches with richly
carved garland console keystone. Consoles to moulded sills on both floors. The
central doorway has inner pilasters supporting archivolt arch with enriched
keystone as on windows, and flanking pilasters with Composite capitals
containing male and female heads. The entablature above has a dentil cornice.
Extending to the right of the hotel proper is a 2-storey coach house with
bracketed eaves cornice to slate roof. Four archivolt arched first floor
windows with linking impost string.
