(Formerly Listed as:

GV II

Public house. c1934, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, some
internal modernisation c1983. Plastered walls on tall Flemish
bond red brick footings; red brick stacks with tall
chimneyshafts; thatched roof.
PLAN: Building faces north-east and backs onto the ground of
Cockington Park. Main block is double-depth with stack in
axial partition. Not quite symmetrical crosswings project
forward with massive projecting stacks on outer sides.
South-east stair block originally intended as a link to a wing
which was never built. Vernacular Revival style.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with single-storey crosswings. Building on
tall plinth and approached by a flight of steps. Main block
has 2 front doorways, one each end, both with flat timber
hoods on open scrolled brackets and containing glazed doors.
Between them a large canted bay containing a series of
horizontal sliding sashes, more over the doors and on all
sides of crosswing and stair block; both 12- and 16-pane.
Hipped roof. Tall roof to main block with deep eaves to
accommodate bay.
INTERIOR: The public parts are largely the result of c1983
"rustication" but large fireplaces with chamfered and
scroll-stopped lintels are original.
The Drum and its garden features were the only parts built of
a Lutyens scheme to create a model village in Cockington. It
is an important building in an exceptionally attractive group
of listed buildings in an unspoilt village and the adjoining
Cockington Park.
