7/77 The Hoopoe
House incorporating restaurant. Early C19. Lath and plaster facade, stone rubble
at rear. Slate roof with gable ends. Brick stack at rear right-hand corner.
Plan. Single large room used as restaurant to right of passage running from front to
rear at left end. The principal room appears originally to have been divided by a
central passage into 2 rooms, but the internal partitions have been removed. There
is a single fireplace across the rear right-hand angle. Dog-leg staircase projects
into, but is screened off from the principal room in its left-hand rear corner; it
enters the short connecting passage from the front range through to the rear wing
which consists of a 2 storey outshut of 1 unheated room beyond which is a lower
lofted kitchen range with a gable end stack, also of 1 room plan. The overall plan
is therefore T-shaped.
Exterior: 3 storeys. 2 window range. All early C19 16-paned hornless sashes with
flush sash boxes. Ground floor has 6 panelled door to left of large double-fronted
shop window with 3 tall vertical panes to each side of central recessed doorway.
Plain timber fascia with dentilled cornice. Rear outshut has 12 paned sash to ground
floor facing courtyard and early C19 3 light casement, 8 panes per light to upper
storey, 6 panelled door with bracketted hood to rear kitchen wing also facing
Interior: cambered brick arch to fireplace in principal room. C19 staircase with
stick balusters and turned newels rising through 3 storeys. C19 joinery entirely
intact to upper storeys. Early C19 integral corner cupboard to rear range with
fielded panelled door. Concealed fireplace to rear range gable end stack. C19 roof
structure to main range with 3 king-post trusses.
The curtilage of the Hoopoe extends south-eastwards to the rear of the adjoining
property, and a blocked doorway in the end entrance passage suggests these two
properties were at 1 time in single ownership. The courtyard contains a group of 3
late C18 or early C19 lean-to outbuildings which back onto the rear of Sun Cottage
(q.v.), and which contain an axial stack (the shaft demolished) the fireplace having
a thin narrow chamfered timber lintel.
