The Gate House
Cottage, latterly inn. Early to mid C18, possibly incorporating an earlier core. Painted sandstone rubble with brick dressings; plain tile roof. Three-unit baffle-entry plan. One storey and attic. Dentil brick eaves cornice and three gabled semi-dormers with two-light wooden casements; brick ridge stack off-centre to right and integral brick end stack to left. Three window front; two-light segmental-headed wooden casements. Half-glazed door between first and second windows off-centre to right with C19 gabled wooden porch. Pair of conically-roofed bread ovens projecting from left-hand gable end. Interior: central ground-floor room has chamfered spine beam, plain joists, and blocked fireplace with lintel.
This cottage was a wheelwright's shop in the later C19 and is also said to have been an alehouse known as the Gate Hangs Well, possibly the alehouse first recorded in 1616. The Gate House occupies a prominent position in the centre of Picklescott. Included
