SD4761 CHURCH STREET

Duke of Lancaster Public House
Formerly known as: No.75 Black Bull Hotel CHURCH STREET.
Public house. c1900. Probably by Austin and Paley. Sandstone
ashlar with roughcast upper floors and ashlar dressings. Slate
roofs with red clay ridge-tiles and decorative finials, plus
chimney stacks on the end gables and at the junction of the
ridges. Rectangular plan on a corner site, with doorways
centrally placed on the elevations to both Church Street and
2 storeys with cellars and attics, and 3 asymmetrical bays to
each street, with a rounded bay on the corner. This has paired
windows on each floor and rises to a round turret at roof
level with a dome above a cornice, and a spike finial. The
corner bay is flanked by pilasters carrying a cornice above
the ground floor which rises to form a segmental open pediment
above the doorways. The doorways to both streets are similar
and have a round-headed moulded arch with a fluted keystone;
the doors are recent.
On Church Street the ground-floor windows are placed
symmetrically on either side of the doorway. They are
tripartite with stone mullions and flat scrolled aprons, and
have timber transoms which rise in a curve in the central
light. On the first floor the windows are arranged with a
single light above the doorway, flanked by a paired window
above the ground-floor windows. Each of these windows has a
plain cornice. The attic has a centrally-placed gable with
prominent bargeboards and a plain window of Venetian form
under the tile-hung apex.
On China Street the ground-floor elevation has, from left to
right, a paired window with heavy keystones (above which the
cornice is forced to rise twice), the doorway, a single
window, and a tripartite window which is detailed like those
on Church Street. The first floor has 3 single windows, placed
above the openings below, then 3 linked windows above the
tripartite window. The attic has a gable to the right
containing a flat oriel, carried on brackets; there is also a
dormer to the left.
To the right along China Street are a 2-storey side wing and,
across a yard, a small 2-storey stable; both are of simpler
design, but original and in keeping.
