4/591 North of the Old Forge
Guest House


Lock-up. Probably C18 or early C19. Local limestone and slate rubble. Barrel-
vaulted stone rubble roof clad in mass concrete which probably replaces slate
Small square single cell building in the form of a lean-to adjoining the back of
a cart-shed. There is a straight masonry joint between the two buildings at
upper level only. The South front has a doorway to the left, the lintel replaced
with a concrete lintel. An iron grille door is to be re-instated. To right a
rectangular window opening with stone frame; the sandstone jambs have been reused,
they are hollow-chamfered and with glazing grooves; the sandstone lintel has been
roughly chamfered to match and the granite cill is also chamfered. The window
has iron bars without glazing. It appears on Elliot's map of Bridgetown, 1825
(Devon Records Office 867B/ES3A) which shows the house and smithy to the south
(The Old Forge Guest House) not to have existed at that time.
