Coursed squared rubble, formerly rendered, with stone
dressings to windows, ashlar copings; Roman tile roofs with
end gable brick stacks to roadside ranges and pantile roof
with end ashlar stack to rear range.
PLAN: possible C17 range to rear of The Old Ship with later
addition facing road which may have been refronted mid C18;
further,lower southern extension which is now Windmill
Cottage. Both ranges have double-depth plans.

2-window range to Windmill Cottage. Symmetrical east front to

edge-moulded stone architraves. Plain architrave to doorway
with flat stone hood on brackets; part-glazed panelled door.
Both return walls have a 2-light chamfered mullion window to
upper floor. Windmill Cottage has bow to right with early C19
tripartite windows in flush limestone surrounds with central
12-pane sashes to both floors. The bow is tied to The Old Ship
by the continuation of the string course above ground-floor
windows. Round-arched doorway to left with steps up, late C20
panelled door and semicircular fanlight; small late C20 3/6
sash window under cambered head either side of doorway; early
C19 12-pane sash with thin glazing bars to first floor.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORICAL NOTE: the inn was used as a staging post on the
turnpike road between Bath and Bristol.
FURTHER INFORMATION: the height above the first-floor windows
and the presence of mullion windows at this level on return
walls of The Old Ship suggests a refronting.
