Shipwright's Arms Public House
Public house. Mid to late C19, with ground-floor of late C19
or early C20. Stucco and brick in English bond. Roof
parapeted. Unusual plan follows curved corner site, with
3-window range to Bermondsey Street, rebated corner range with
full-height segmental bay, and 5-window range to return.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys over basement. Round-arched entrance at
corner, flanked by colonnettes in rebated jambs; garland to
arch. To either side, as well as to party walls a rusticated
pier of Ionic order, topped by pedimented and garlanded
bracket; thin Ionic colonnettes define glazed ground-floor
bays; plain entablature band sign fascia.
The most striking feature of the building, apart from its
unusual plan, is the crouching Caryatid with outstretched arms
beneath the corner segmental bay. Giant pilasters flanking
corner range repeated on party wall and return. All
upper-floor windows are flat-arched, those to the 1st-floor
with eared and shouldered architraves, entablature with
fretted frieze, topped by alternating segmental and triangular
pediments; corner windows on both floors are tripartite as are
centre windows on main elevation and 2nd bay of return.
Springing band to 1st floor. Keyed lintels and projecting
sills on brackets to 2nd floor. Plain entablature band
stepping out over giant pilasters; projecting cornice.
Secondary entrances at left party wall and on return.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
