Public house. C17, early C18, C19 and 1961. Red brick,
machine-made tile roof. Rectangular plan with C20 additions to
rear. 1961 extension to W, lower in height, in matching style,
not of special interest and not to be included in this
EXTERIOR: 2 storey and attic with gable end chimneys. N front
elevation, 5-bay range, centre bay with door but no window
above. Ground floor has a C19 3-light sash window with glazing
bars, 1x4, 3x4, 1x4 panes, with a segment head each side of
central front door. Door, C20 has upper glazing with glazing
bars, 2x3 panes and 2 lower panels. Simple C20 gabled porch
with decorative gable bracing integrated with a full length
C20 lean-to canopy all bracketed to the front wall roofed with
C20 flat tiles. First floor, 4 sash windows, closely spaced as
2 pairs, flush frames, glazing bars, 3x4 panes. Roof has a
moulded eaves board and 2 hip roofed dormers with 2-light
casements with glazing bars, 2x2 panes. Gable ends have brick
parapets and brick brick kneelers. Rear, S elevation, because
it is into rising ground and covered with additions, no wall
of the original house is to be seen. To E end, small mansard
roof extension projects, having a weatherboarded W gable end,
with a single light casement window. W end elevation obscured
by C20 addition. E end elevation rendered and colourwashed
with exterior gable end stack and single window on ground and
first floor in extension. Ground floor sash with glazing bars,
segment headed, 4x4 panes, first floor, C20 2-light casement.
INTERIOR: has C17 timber-framing exposed on ground and first
floor of original back wall, primary braced with carpenters'
marks. A winding stair with C19 woodwork rises at the rear, in
centre, apparently curving tightly around a stack now gone.
C19 boarded partitioning for upper rooms. Much re-organisation
of rooms but 3 cells apparent. Interior evidence, grouping of
first-floor windows and central rise in roof ridge suggest the
origin was a C17 lobby entrance house with large central stack
and a room each side. This form probably remained into the
C18, when the brick front was added, and into the the C19 when
the stair was rebuilt. The removal of the central stack was
probably contemporary with the C19 fireplaces that remain in
the gable end positions.
