Pilton Church Hall
(Formerly Listed as:
PILTON STREET, Pilton
Formerly known as: Unicorn Inn PILTON STREET Pilton.
House, later an inn, now church hall. Probably late C16, much
altered C19 and early C20; hall added at rear in early C20.
Very thick, roughcast front wall. Right side wall of painted
brick. Tiled roofs. One ridge-tile with an animal crest may be
a reused original; if so it is an exceptionally rare example
of what was once a feature of ridges in Devon towns. 2 early
C20 red brick chimneys on rear wall.
2-room and through-passage, but passage walls have been
rebuilt and so, probably, has the right end wall. Fireplaces
in rear wall.
2 storeys; rear hall single-storeyed. 3-window range. Doorway,
off-centre to left, has late C16 door-frame with flattened
Tudor arch; sunk spandrels, ogee and hollow mouldings; lower
parts of jambs restored; C20 Tudor-style plank door with
moulded ribs. Old, worn doorstep of local stone. 2
ground-storey windows to left; that to right a 12-paned fixed
sash with several panes of old glass and moulded frame; that
to left a double-hung sash with 6 over 6 panes also containing
some old glass. To right of doorway a canted bay window with
C20 6-paned wood casements. At far right-hand end a C19 fixed
12-paned sash, the top left-hand pane with 2 pairs of
H-hinges. Upper-storey windows have 3- and 4-light wood
casements with a single horizontal glazing bar to each light.
Wall-plate/gutter support on shaped brackets.
INTERIOR: passage walls of brick. Ceiling of room to right has
plastered beams with enriched cornices along them and on the
adjacent walls. Front wall has a section of thickly painted,
decorated plaster frieze. C19/C20 plank dado and chimneypiece
of similar date, the latter in rear wall close to the passage.
1973 list description says: 'Matchboarding incorporates some
linenfold panels'; this was not seen, but a portion of the
dado in the bay window was missing.
Upper-storey left-hand room has fireplace with bead-moulded
wood surround in rear wall. 2 exposed roof trusses with
slightly cambered, morticed-and-tenoned collars; slots for
threaded purlins; front principals have slightly curved feet.
Right-hand room not inspected; presumably it contains the
'Remains of plasterwork also to 1st floor room', noted 1973.
