3/63 Drake Manor Inn
Inn, formerly may have been church house. C17, extended and altered probably in
C19. Rendered stone rubble walls with gable-ended grouted scantle slate roof. 2
stone rendered rubble lateral stacks at rear with a rendered brick stack alongside.
Rendered brick axial stack.
Original plan is likely to have been 3-room and through or cross passage; at
present only the 2 left-hand rooms show evidence of old features, the room to their
right may represent the re-modelling of an earlier structure whilst the room beyond
is a C19 addition. The 2 left-hand rooms (now bars) both have rear lateral stacks
and originally were probably divided by a passage. At the rear of the left-hand
room is a very small room in a projection which from the evidence of its granite
framed window is original; its position adjoining the fireplace and its proportions
and small windows suggest it may originally have been a stair tower.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front, all circa late C19 6-pane sashes; the
ground floor windows, except that at the centre, have C20 wooden shutters. At left
and right of centre is late C20 'Georgian style' panelled doors. C19 extension at
right-hand end has C20 casements on ground and first floor to the left and door to
the right. At rear, towards right-hand end, is small gabled wing with single
granite framed light.
Interior : left-hand room has chamfered cross beams with hollow step stops. The
fireplace has a plain wooden, probably replacement, lintel with 1 roughly chamfered
granite jamb to the right. The adjoining room has a fireplace with hollow
chamfered granite jambs; the original lintel has evidently been removed to be
replaced by a higher stone arch with keystone, probably inserted in C19 possibly to
take a range below. Roof trusses consist of rough insubstantial principal rafters
lapped at the apex with lapped and pegged collars : probably C19.
