tiles; stepped stone coping and moulded kneelers to gable
ends; brick stacks to left gable and left-of-centre.
PLAN: double-depth plan.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 5-window range. The left side is
virtually symmetrical 2-window range, with timber lintels over
central C20 door and 3-light casements. An external stone
staircase with iron railings extends from the right of the
left section, to a door on the first-floor of the service end,
with another door below the landing. To the right of it is a
carriage entrance with doors, under an elliptical arch with
stone voussoirs; to the far right are double garage doors, and
between, is a plain door with leaded overlight.
INTERIOR: The room to the far right, now a garage, has several
layers of floorboards above the joists to the upper room,
those visible are wide, possibly beechwood. The stable to the
inside right has a roughly cobbled floor and planked divisions
to 3 stalls with half-round tree supports; a manger to the
rear is made from 2 rough planks. In the bars to the left of
the building are 2 fireplaces; that to the far left is a small
open fireplace with a stone lintel and jambs, that to the
right has a shallow-arched oak beam. The facade constitutes a
well-preserved example of an C18 inn.
