BURFORD AND UPTON AND SIGNET
HIGH STREET (West Side)
(Formerly listed as No 124 (R Reavley Chemist), previously listed as premises adjoining Barclays Bank on the south)
House, once a hostelry, shop below. c.1700-20 remodelling of C15 building incorporating an earlier roof-structure. Jettied timber-frame and rendered front, except for rubble set-back right hand part, rubble side elevation, hipped Cotswold stone roof with ashlar side chimney to left. L-plan.
Two storeys; a pair of glazing-bar sashes on first floor in moulded architraves, Cotswold stone pentice over front; restored angled bay window with glazing bars to left, wooden panelled c.1700 screen to right with two glazing-bar sash windows. Hipped one bay return extension and a set-back two-storey three-window wing to west.
Interior: in the shop a large octagonal timber post in centre of ground floor bressumer with residual moulding to cap. Newel stair in angle with paired entry door; stairs with slender balusters possible contemporary (c.1720). To rear lobby a splat-baluster ventilated larder door. Important roof-structure: the hall has a large intact arch-braced truss at north end (seen as a simplified hammerbean roof by M Laithewaite), chamfered edges and smoke blackening. The former solar roof is lower and of four bays; there are two archbraced trusses now on tie-beams, they carry a square ridge, king-posts to low saddlepieces, and the ridges are braced from the king posts, edges chamfered, wind-braces removed. The only other example of this kind of roof inspected locally was in the Old Rectory, Westwell.
Originally the "Novum Hospitium Anycilere."
