Golden Lion Public House
Inn. Dated 1679, altered C19. Painted rendered stone with
plinth and painted mock timber framing; roof synthetic tile in
imitation of stone slates, with rendered and brick chimneys. 3
low storeys; 4-window range. Plain stone surround to 4-panel
door and plain overlight in third bay, and to 6-pane sashes: 2
to left of door, 3 to first floor, and one on second floor in
third bay, all with surrounds painted in lines continuing to
form mock timber framing. At right a full-height square bay
window with 6-pane sashes, and plain sashes to return. All
ground floor windows set low in wall. Inn sign hangs from
large wrought-iron bracket at top of second bay. Roof has left
chimney rendered and raised above adjacent building; central
INTERIOR: steps down into building; ground floor altered.
HISTORY: The fall from outside ground level probably reflects
the position on the castle ditch where building encroachment
seems to have begun in the early C17.
