AND SIGNET (West side)
SP2512 (Enlargement) No 152 (The Dragon
7/154 Inn) (previously listed
12.9.55 as the New Inn).


Burgage house, an inn for over 200 years. Early-mid C19 front in C18
style masking C17 remodelling of mediaeval building. Freestone with
Cotswold stone roof. Coach-way between two wings, south wing appears to
have been the storeyed wing off the hall (the rear wing). 2 chimneys,
ashlar with moulded capping to right of centre, brick to right. 2
storeys; band over ground floor, oversailing eaves courses. 3 windows on
1st floor, paired glazing-bar sashes; 2 outer angled bays on stone bases
to ground floor and central segmental head entry. 2 irregular 2-storey
extensions to rear, the south side one heavily beamed with reused
presumably mediaeval timbers (thought to be site of earlier hall - if so
an unusual plan). Inside the coachway is a beam with evidence of stud
partition to left, into it the spine beam from the south room is tenoned
plain ogee stop chamfer, cobbled coachway.
