6/26 The Bridge Inn (Previously listed
15.3.66 as Bridge Hotel)


Former farmhouse and out-buildings, now a public house and restaurant.
Rendered on north (road) side, C20 brick on south. C20 slate and pantile
roofs. 3 ranges of buildings lie parallel to the road and comprise (north
to south): former farmhouse and outbuilding, now bars and offices, former
stables, now dining room, and former barn, now offices and storeroom. The
ranges are linked by false walls and C20 extensions. 2 storeys, each range
approximately 5 bays long. South facade: left range has C20 sash windows in
late C18 ashlar architraves with triangular pediments. Central range has
C20 round-headed windows with circular windows over. Right range has
20-pane sash windows in late C18 ashlar architraves, pulvinated frieze and
broken segmental pediment. Interior: central range (dining room) contains
elaborate C18 Rococo plasterwork and woodwork: panels between windows with
garlands of flowers and grapes and masks with scallop shells; architraves
decorated with gadrooning; elaborate fireplace and overmantle to west end in
the same style. The ceiling has cherubs, busts and musical instruments in
elaborate festoons and garlands. A room on the south side of the dining
room contains fine fluted Corinthian column and ½ columns, Ionic columns
flanking doorway, and a fireplace with carved fruit and flowers and consoles
supporting corniced and gadrooned mantle shelf. Lounge-bar in range to
right contains late C17 panelling composed of large fielded panels in
moulded surrounds. C20 ranges at right angles to south of this group not of
special interest. The interior fittings, and probably the external
architraves also, were removed from Halnaby Hall, Croft near Darlington,
c1950. Halnaby Hall was built c1728 for the Milbanke family and has
associations with Lord Byron. Drawings and photographs of the early C20
show the features now preserved in the Bridge Inn. Victoria Country History
