White Horse Inn


Public house. C16, with early C19 exterior. Timber-framed, encased and
extended in red brick, now painted; plaintiles; pierced and fluted bargeboards
with spike finials to gables; brick dentil cornice. Various single-storey
extensions at rear in flint and timber framing with pantiled roofs. 2 storeys
and attics; 3-cell plan to main range. A red brick internal chimney-stack has
a shaft with recessed panels and corbelled head. Small-paned sash windows: 4
to upper floor, in cased frames with slight reveals; 3 to ground floor with
gauged heads to brickwork; one tripartite sash. Small recessed 6-panelled
entrance door, the top 4 panels glazed, with a gauged head to the brick
surround. Interior of main range in 2 distinct sections: to the left of the
stack 3 bays with the remains of very good studding, short angled jowls to
main posts, arched braces removed, one complete 5-light diamond-mullioned
window on the rear upper wall. The main 2-bay room on the ground floor has
very fine double roll-mouldings on main cross-beams and stops in leaf form;
joists with run-off stops. The end bay, originally a separate parlour, has a
main beam with leaf stop and bar. The roof over this section has principal
rafters, clasped purlins, windbraces, and arched braces meeting at the centre
below the cambered collar of the open truss. The inner side of the partition
against the chimney-stack, and the rafters beside it, are heavily blackened,
and formed part of a smoke-bay into which the stack was inserted later. To
the right of the stack, the framing is mainly covered and of poorer quality;
roof with butt and clasped purlins, much repaired. One C18 timber-framed rear
wing has very poor framing.
