Statement of Interest

A plan by thomas telford for an inn at at stein (sro,rhp 11787)is for a long single storey building,but like the existing inn,it has a tripartite division made by 2 cross-walls,and it formerly had a second door in the right-hand range,as on telford's plan.but the executed design is evidently different from the above,though this is not to say that the existing building might not yet owe something to telford.
