The Plough Public House


Public house. Late C17/early C18, extended C19, and with later
alterations. Whitewashed render over brick with plain tile
roofs and brick and stucco end stacks. L-plan with wing to
rear and extension on left end.
2 storeys; 2-window range of 2/2 sashes. Doorcase to left with
part-glazed door. 2-storey extension, gable facing, also has a
2/2 sash on each floor. Rear wing has door and further windows
and with lower 2-storey and single-storey extensions on left
end. Unevenness of brickwork suggests some timber-framing may
survive in the inner back walls of the L.
INTERIOR: ground floor opened up into one large area, but low
ceilings remain on both floors. Roof of front range and wing
is original with ties with curved principals, 2 tiers of
purlins, and coupled rafters.
This public house is recorded as licensed premises from 1786.
