House, now public house. Late C18, altered C19. Sandstone
ashlar with rubble, partly rendered on sides and rear. Slate
roofs with kneelers and with copings partly remaining.
Double-depth plan with a central doorway, gable chimney
stacks, and a full-height extension to the left.
3 storeys above cellars which are expressed as a plinth with
large stones, and 5 bays between chamfered quoins. All the
openings have plain surrounds. The doorway is recessed up 4
steps, and there is a low entrance to the cellar under the
ground-floor window of the fifth bay. Cellar openings in the
first and second bays are partly blocked. The lintels of the
second-floor windows are continued to form a deep band, and
all the windows are sashed without glazing bars.
HISTORY: in 1890 a horse tram service to Morecambe was
started, with a terminus in nearby Stonewell, and with some
stables behind what is now the Tramway Hotel.
