06/09/74 Swan Inn and attached stables
(Formerly Listed as:
Hotel. C17 and C18, remodelled late C19.
MATERIALS: Ham Hill stone ashlar facade, limestone rubble to
the rest, slate roof with stone coping, moulded kneelers and
brick stacks to gable ends.
PLAN: double-depth plan with rear wing to the right continuing
along the rear and left to enclose a courtyard.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys; symmetrical 5-window range. Rusticated
quoins and a plain eaves band. Flat arches with incised
keystones over late C19 horned 2/2-pane sashes. An oak 4-panel
door with tall overlight, is set under a Tuscan-style porch
with columns, cornice and blocking course.
To the rear is a courtyard with a C19 function room opposite;
this is on the first-floor, of tongued-and-grooved wood with 4
large 6/6-pane sashes. C20 buildings connect it to stables on
the left: these are 2 storeys, with stone staircase to the
left and two segmental arches, now blocked.
The earlier recorded building was remodelled and the facade
may originate from the C18, though it now has a
shallow-pitched roof and second-floor windows of the same
height as those on the first floor; the stacks, however, may
be C18, they are single rows on Ham Hill stone bases.
INTERIOR: The ground floor of the hotel is C20 Tudor-style,
the upper floors are altered but have 4-panel doors. The
stables have 6 original stalls, the divisions of which are of
diagonal planking with swept tops and chamfered newels,
HISTORY: In 1751 there were 35 hostelries in Crewkerne. The
Swan Hotel was among the four most important, and was
described as "newly built" in 1774.
