George Inn
(Formerly Listed as:

(The George Inn))


Inn, formerly three houses. Dated 1765 above main door, said
to have been built for William Butts, the parish clerk;
altered in C19. Large squared stone or rubble, slate roofs. A
series of linked units: from left, a one-storey store with
corrugated asbestos roof over rubble walls containing pair of
plank garage doors; slightly stepped up a further store in
large squared stone block with slate roof, but single course
of stone slate at eaves, coped verge to left. A plank door,
left, and 2-light casement, right. Then a two-storey lofty
section containing the former Court Leet meeting room in
coursed rubble with flush quoins and lintols, slate roof; two
large 12-pane sashes above a single 12-pane, and to the right
a pair of C20 glazed doors under a rectilinear transom light.
The back of this part has a small and a larger 12-pane sash
above a 4-panel door. Brick stack to left gable. The main
building in large dressed squared stone block with slate roof;
low two storeys with attic, projecting near-central porch and
deep back wing; 3 windows width, to the left a small 2-light
casement with glazing bars, then two large 12-pane mid C19
sashes above a small 2-light casement and a 3-light chamfered
stone-mullioned small-pane casement and a 20-pane wide sash in
a flush plat band. To the left a plank door, and near centre a
gabled stone porch with side lights covering a ledged and
framed C18 door on early strap hinges: above this a cambered
lintel and a stone inscribed "B W*G" over "1765" in a
patterned border. Left of centre a stone ridge stack with
blocking course above capping, and to right a late C19 brick
stack. Back has a deep gabled wing which includes a small
single stair light, and a brick stack. The mullioned window
led the RCHM to suggest that the building has C17 origins.
