1685-1/7/18 The Three Mariners Public House
(Formerly Listed as:
Carpenters' Arms Hotel)


Public house. Late C17, with C19 addition, altered and
restored early C20. Coursed sandstone rubble with slate roof
and brick chimneys. Rectangular 3-unit plan, with a
Single-storey addition on the right.
The original building has 3 storeys and 3 bays and gable
chimneys. The doorway between bays 2 and 3 has a restored
chamfered surround including a shaped lintel. The windows are
mostly restored and have flush chamfered mullions on the
ground floor and chamfered mullions in rebated and chamfered
surrounds above. All are of 3 lights except for a 2-light
window in the 2nd bay on the ground floor. The C19 extension
has a shallow-pitched roof and a gable chimney; it is of a
full height but has only 2 storeys. It has on the right a tall
doorway with a plain surround and overlight, and a large
6-paned sash window on each floor.
INTERIOR: the third unit has 2 large roughly chamfered axial
beams; the remainder has roughly-shaped lateral beams, but the
positions of all suggest alterations which may have included
the removal of a former axial chimney stack.
HISTORY: Bridge Lane was the main road leading north over the
Lune until Skerton Bridge was built in 1788. Most of the
remaining part of the street was demolished when a new road
from China Street to the Bus Station was made in 1937. Old
photographs, one dated 1927, show that the present facade,
which once formed part of a row of buildings, is largely
restored. They show a gabled 4th storey above the 2 right-hand
bays, and a ground-floor doorway in the left-hand bay.
