No. 38, The Molesworth Arms Hotel

GV ll

Coaching Inn, now public house. Circa late C17. Stuccoed, rendered and painted
stone rubble with chamfered quoins. Bitumen coated rag slate roof with gable end on
right and hipped end on left. Brick axial stack on front slope towards left and
brick end stack on right.
Plan: The inn has been considerably altered and extended in the C19 and C20 and the
original plan is uncertain. Possibly originally of single depth, 2 room plan with
wide arch through building providing access for coaches through to stables and coach
house to rear. Circa mid C18 extension of 1 room plan to rear left, further extended
in early and mid C19 forming an overall 'L' shaped plan. The inn was also extended
into the adjoining property on the right (qv 36 Molesworth Street). In circa early
to mid C20 the wide archway through the inn was blocked off to form a vestibule and
reception area. At time of inspection (1986) the stables and coach house to rear
were in the process of considerable alteration and conversion to domestic use.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front. Late C17 open porch with 2
granite doric columns and moulded cornice. C20 part glazed door. 2 wide C20 24-pane
sashes to left and C20 door to right. First floor with 2 early C19 and 3 late C19 or
C20 12-pane sashes.
Interior: Much altered with some remains of C18 and C19 panelling reset. C19
granite lintel to fireplace in rear left hand wing. C19 stair with stick balusters
and wreathed rail.
