(Formerly Listed as:
The Angel Hotel)


Public House, probably in use as an inn since the mid-C18.
Probably substantially of the mid C18, though extended in the
later C18 with the growth of Stourport as a new town. Brick
with Welsh slate roof. 3-storeyed, 3 bays with central doorway
in pedimented case with consoles carrying entablature. Windows
on ground and first floor are wide 20-pane sashes with flat
arched rubbed brick heads with keystones. A change of
brickwork, and different window types suggest that the upper
storey was added to an existing building at the end of the
C18. The windows here are 16-pane sashes with single ring
segmentally arched heads. Dentilled eaves band, large
projecting stack to east, smaller, possibly later stack on
west gable. Early descriptions of "Stourmouth" refer to an inn
on the river as one of the few buildings to pre-date the
establishment of the new town. It seems likely that the Angel
is the successor of that early inn, and it certainly appears
on an engraving of the early canal structures of 1773.
