The Owl Inn


Public house. Probably earlier C17, but remodelled, altered
and enlarged. Remains of timber-framing in east gable wall,
but otherwise coursed squared sandstone rubble, with slate
roofs. Irregular plan composed of former 2-unit main range
with rear wing, additions to the rear and at the right-hand
end, 2 low storeys; 2 windows; a blocked round-headed doorway
offset left of centre, with dressed voussoirs and raised
keystone; enlarged square windows at ground floor with raised
sills and wedge lintels, and transomed 3-light casements; 2
pairs of small coupled 9-pane sashed windows at 1st floor. The
left gable wall has rendered cladding at ground floor, but
above that the original timber-framing is exposed, with corner
posts, 2 intermediate posts, one rail, angle-braces in the
upper panels, and a principal-rafter roof truss with vertical
struts to the principals. At the right-hand end is a
single-storey continuation. INTERIOR: remodelled, but the 2nd
bay has 2 large quarter-round moulded lateral beams and a
chamfered beam at the junction with the rear wing; and the 1st
bay has a similar stop-chamfered lateral beam terminating at a
C20 beam which has replaced a former longitudinal partition.
