attached gates


Formerly court, now public house. Court of 1483, predominantly
early C18, partly rebuilt 1960s, refurbished 1987. Rendered
rubble, limestone details and pantile roof. Formerly single
front room with a right-hand open court to the rear, now
3 storeys, attic and basement; 4-window range. A wide gabled
front with the first floor projecting forward and overhanging
4 closely-chamfered stone Doric columns to a moulded
entablature beam, set forward to the columns, with panelled
clasping pilasters and moulded strings to each floor, and
bracketed eaves. Central doorway with C20 double doors,
flanking C19 two-light left-hand and 4-light right-hand
plate-glass windows; windows above in bolection-moulded
exposed frames, with 6/6-pane sashes. 1-window right-hand
return; the rest of the side is c1988. The rear has a narrow
projecting left-hand section, and a projecting second-floor
section to the right.
INTERIOR: extensively altered 1987; some early C18 panelling
and cornice to the front ground-floor room with a stone
right-hand fire surround with pulvinated frieze and cornice;
left-hand front open-well stair with uncut string, barleysugar
balusters, square newels with pyramidal finials, and a moulded
rail; fully-panelled first-floor room with 6-panel door and
C20 fire surround; a well in the former rear court has a C19
iron hand pump with fly wheel and pump rods. Stone vaulted
basement with barrel skid.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached timber fences flank the front
doorway, with newels with spike finials, and gates to the
left-hand cellar hatch.
HISTORICAL NOTE: originally the Pie-Poudre Court of the
Market, reputedly held in the first-floor room. Until the
1960s the gable was truncated. The right-hand return rebuilt
after the demolition of the neighbouring building through the
Inner Ring Road.
