NORTH ROAD (South side)
No. 24

(Formerly listed as The Lion public house, NORTH ROAD)


Former public house. 1855. By James Bunstone Bunning for the Corporation of the City of London. Yellow brick set in English bond, Portland stone dressings, roof of slate.

Four storeys over basement, four windows to North Road, five to the east, these being the principal facades. Rusticated stone quoins to corners; stone plinth, now painted. One flat-arched entrance in North Road, three to the east, one now blocked; flat-arched windows to ground floor flanked by slim engaged columns, the windows to the east forming, with the entrances, a continuous range across the whole front; fascia. The first floor windows are round-arched with architrave, cornice on consoles and panelled spandrels, those to the east being one pane deeper than those in North Road, probably in relation to a balcony, now missing; sill band to second-floor windows which are similarly detailed but with segmental pediments instead of cornices; third floor windows round-arched with bracketed sills, panelled spandrels and plain stepped pilasters running up into the plain frieze; dentil cornice; all windows have sashes of original design; two hipped roofs running north-south with panelled and corniced stacks, one to each ridge and two end stacks to south. The only surviving mid C19 features of the interior are the cornices with rosette and egg-and-dart ornament.
