Inn. Probably early C17 origin, with alterations and additions of later C17 and
early C18; probably early C18 cross wing added to upper end, C19 alterations and C20
alterations. Painted stone rubble, rear rendered, slate roof, partly renewed and
with some scantle slates remaining over upper end, with corrugated asbestos over
cross wing. Gable end stack to right gable end and front lateral stack to hall.
Probably originally 3 room and through passage plan, with lower end to right and hall
and inner room to left above passage. The lower end room is heated by a gable end
stack, the hall by a front lateral stack. The inner room has been much altered, and
a cross wing of 2-room plan added to the upper end, which appears to have been
unheated. Probably in the late C17 a stair tower was added to the front, to the
right of the passage; this was partly enclosed by later outshut to the front right,
and an outshut at the right gable end encloses-the gable end stack. C20 additions to
the rear and removal of internal partition walls.
2 storeys, front door to passage has glazed panel, timber lintel and slate hood. To
right, the roof pitch is extended over the stair tower, which has a 6-pane sash under
eaves. To the left of the passage, the front lateral stack with cornice and shaped
top. To right, the roof is extended over the outshut in front of the lower end, with
2 paired 4-pane lights and C20 light, 2 C20 roof lights. Gable end stack to right
has cornice and shaped top. The upper end has a cross wing with gable end to front,
of 2 storeys, at same roof level. The right end has a single storey addition with
hipped slate roof, loading door and 2-light casement. To the rear, the gable end of
the cross wing has C20 windows. Along the ground floor of the main range, a single
storey addition, with 3 C20 windows, the central one formerly a door, corresponding
to the rear of the passage. At first floor, from left, two 6-pane sashes, and 3
casements of 2 lights and 3 lights, and a single light under eaves, 1 blocked window
under eaves to left of C20 stack. The outer side of the cross wing has C20 windows.
Interior : The front entrance now leads directly into the room, with C20 partitions
forming internal porch, with granite and slate floor; plastered stud partition to
left to hall. The stair tower has a dog-leg stair, with balusters removed and C19
partitions. The lower end room has slate floor and very wide gable end fireplace,
with stepped granite arch, to left side an unusually deep oven, granite-lined. Hooks
for smoking in the flue. In rear of fireplace to right, a lancet, chamfered on the
outside (concealed by later addition), possibly for draught control. The front
lateral hall stack has C20 fireplace. At first floor, the doorway to the room over
the hall has early C18 2-panelled door. Over-the hall, 5 feet of principal rafters
visible, chamfered. 3 further principal feet visible over the cross wing, which
incorporates an earlier room, with same wall thickness at inner room as at hall.
Rest of roof structure not accessible.
