11/169 The Bucks Head P.H.

Inn, now a public house. Late C16 or early C17 built for Nedham family,
post-Reformation Lords of the Manor, as Black Buck's Head Inn named
after their crest. Altered in C17. Sold by family in 1712. Timber frame
on brick sill, panelled roughcast with plain margins. Exposed timber
framing on E side. Steep old red tile roofs. A 2-storeys and cellar,
H-plan, 3-cells, lobby-entry, internal chimney plan inn facing N with
only the gabled and jettied 1st floor of the 2 wings projecting to the
front, and the staircase to the rear of the stack. Middle part of N
front has entrance up steps with boarded door in heavy frame next the W
wing, deep coved eaves cornice, and shallow rectangular 2-storeys bay
window. Canted bay window below jetty of E wing, with 3-lights casement
window with small panes to 1st floor of each wing and ground floor of W
wing. Interior has exposed framework with jowled posts, axial chamfered
and hollow-stopped beams to 2-bays hall part, old joists remaining in
part of floor in E wing, and plain squared joists over the W wing. Large
internal chimney serving hall and W wing built in stages. Clasped-purlin
roofs. Pegged bracket supporting E end of axial floor beam in hall and
eaves-cove suggest the hall range was heightened in the C17 to make 2
full floors. The fireplaces serving the W wing and the 1st floor are
probably later additions. (RCHM (1911)149: VCH (1912)186-7: inf
