The Old Dog Inn


Public house. Probably earlier C19; altered 1898. Brick, the
front faced with rusticated ashlar at ground floor and stucco
above, and all painted; slate roof. Double-depth plan, with
through wagon entry at left end. Three storeys (probably over
cellars), 4 bays, the ground floor treated as a rustic and the
upper floors (except the 1st bay) as a symmetrical 3-bay
classical composition with giant pilasters, moulded cornice,
and a central pediment containing a medallion. The ground
floor has a round-headed doorway in the 3rd bay under an
elaborate segmental-pedimented canopy, the pediment containing
monogrammed lettering "18 MB & Co Ltd 98" (probably Massey
Burnley brewery), 2 sashed windows to the right, a wide
elliptical-arched window to the left with a keyed moulded
architrave, and at the left end an elliptical-arched wagon
entry with a similar keyed moulded head and imposts (that to
the right run out as a cornice over a doorway at the canted
corner of the entry), and decorated wrought-iron gates. The
upper floors have sashed windows with moulded architraves,
those in the 3rd bay coupled and with a frieze over the 1st
floor lettered "THE OLD DOG INN", and those at 1st floor of
the flanking bays with cornices. Rear: scored render, narrow
sashed windows with raised sills and wedge lintels, sashed
stair-window with margin panes. INTERIOR altered.
