Public house. 1898. By WEV Crompton; slightly altered. Red
brick in Flemish bond with matching terracotta dressings,
slate roof concealed by parapet. Double-depth double-fronted

terracotta sill-and head-bands to the upper floors, prominent
modillioned cornice with egg-and-dart enrichment and
balustraded parapet. The full-height projected centre has an
open porch at ground floor with 2 pairs of polished granite
Tuscan columns carrying a prominent segmental canopy, and a
doorway with moulded surround and panelled double doors; a
mullion-and-transom window at 1st floor with arched centre
