panelled door and semicircular fanlight; small late C20 3/6
sash window under cambered head either side of doorway; early

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.
