History

Part of late C18 or early C19 linear range, including a Public House to the L (N) end; later alterations and additions. The 1841 census returns for the parish lists Elinor Jones as the publican, her husband William is recorded as being a joiner; also listed are Owen Lewis, shoemaker, and his family, and William Thomas, also a shoesmith.

Exterior

Public House is a long 3 window range (perhaps originally a 2-unit house and cottage); doorway in porch between 2 left hand windows, 2 closely spaced windows in right hand bay. Windows are C20 casements, probably replacing earlier sashes; with shaped, eared and shouldered architraves, first floor windows set directly under the eaves.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a traditional inn, retaining good C19 vernacular character notwithstanding alteration to detail. Part of a good terraced row.
