SE l05209
2/56 The Fleece Inn

Home, now public house, early Cl7, c.1610 date on back door lintel. Thin
hammer-dressed stone with stone slate roof, except porch above door head which
is fronted in ashlar. 2 storeys, arranged on a hall-and-crosswings U-plan, with
a kitchen wing projecting from the centre at the rear. South front has main
entrance sited at east end of hall range. The entrance is protected by a
2 storey porch with gable in the angle between hall range and east wing. Porch
door has depressed tudor arched head with spandrels and open into a through
passage. Over are two 3-light arch headed chamfered mullioned windows, the
only ones in the building, which may indicate a different date for porch or even
a re-used porch from elsewhere. The main front has four gables. Both east and
west wings and central hall have 12-light double chamfered mullioned windows
with King mullion and transom. A continuous string course runs across the front
above the ground floor windows which have double chamfered mullioned windows of
5 lights to the first floor with string above. Both projecting wings have
quoins and coped gables with kneelers. The east wing has a double chamfered
3-light mullioned attic window with double string above to gable, probably pigeon
columbarium. Hall chamber gable has arch-headed recess in gable. All chimney
stacks are of late C18 or c19 date. Internally the first floor shows that some
of the original internal divisions between the rooms were of timber. The
closing truss at the east end of the hall range has a King-post and 7 'V' braces.
