13/17 Assheton Arms

Public house, 1765. Squared coursed limestone with stone slate roof. 2
storeys, 4 bays. Windows sashed with glazing bars and plain stone surrounds.
Those to bay 3 are tripartite with square mullions. The left-hand bay was
formerly a stable, and its windows appear to be modern but in keeping. A
door at the left has a plain stone surround. The main door is between bays
3 and 4 and has a plain stone surround with open pediment hood on shaped
brackets. Chimneys between bays one and 2, 2 and 3, and on right-hand
gable. The interior has a stone fireplace with moulded cornice mantel and
a lintel with fluted false key inscribed 'IBS 1765'. Adjoining to the
south, and now used as a dining room, are former cottages. They are
probably mid C19th with C17th remains and are of limestone rubble with
sandstone dressings and stone slate roof. The south facade is of 2 storeys
and 3 bays and has sashed windows with glazing bars and plain stone
surrounds. The doors, with plain stone surrounds, are to the left of the
2nd bay and to the left of the right-hand bay. To the left of the right-
hand door is a straight joint. The part of the building to its left has
the remains of window surrounds of C17th type. Chimneys to right of 2nd bay
and on right-hand gable. The left-hand gable, facing west, has a sashed
window with glazing bars and plain stone surround on the 1st floor.
