The Ship Inn
Inn. C17, late C19 alterations. Painted Portland stone ashlar,
PLAN: single-depth set with a gable end to the Quay, and with
entrance across the corner; the building is part of a larger
group of common date, continuing N along Maiden Street, (RAFA
Association, qv), and returning to St Edmund Street (Duke of
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic; windows are generally stone
mullioned casements, set flush, with double chamfer. The S
end, facing the Quay, has a small 2-light to the attic, above
a larger 2-light under a label mould which continues round the
quadrant corner. At the ground floor is a C20 recessed
multi-pane bow, with a reeded pilaster surround and dentil
cornice. The gable has a central ashlar stack with thin
capping, and saddle-back coping, swept to haunches and
returned at the quadrant to the right. The sunk quadrant
corner has a large 2-light wooden casement with transom above
the panelled doors with a recessed panel over.
The long front to Maiden Street has three 6-pane sash
Victorian gabled dormers above 3-light casement with the label
course brought round from the S side, and, far right, 4-light
casement with label, and a large 4-pane sash.
Ground floor windows are late C19 insertions, but in similar
detail to the originals, with a 3-light plus dentilled
transom, under label dropped at the ends, and a smaller single
light the same, a wide light with steel multi-pane light with
spandrel and label, and a 2-light with external shutters.
To the far right, and in part under the adjoining property, is
a wide doorway with moulded 4-centred stone lintel. A lofty
brick stack at the eaves between the first 2 dormers.
INTERIOR: partly inspected only but appears to retain little
of the original detail. The loss of interior detail in this
and the adjoining buildings is to be regretted but they still
present an important series of early fronts to the streets.
