Public house, possibly formerly 2 pairs of cottages. Circa early to mid C19
with C20 addition and internal alterations. Painted local stone rubble with
rendered gable ends. Asbestos slate roof with gabled ends. Gable end stacks
with tapered shafts with slate weathering.
Plan: A long rectangular range that may originally have been 2 pairs of
cottages; it is 2 storeys over 2 storeys of cellars which have access at the
back onto the quay which is at a much lower level that the road at the front
of the building. The internal plan of the ground floor of the 'house' has
been entirely altered in the C20 to form bars to the public house and there
is a C20 3-storey extension along the back of the building.
Exterior: 2 storeys over 2 storeys of cellars. The road front is 2 storeys,
symmetrical 4-window range with early to mid C19 16-pane sashes with segmented
brick arches and slate sills. The first floor right hand window is now a 4-
pane sash. The walls on either side of the ground floor windows are rebated
to take the boarded window shutters. 2 doorways, a C19 6-panel door to left
and right of centre, the lower panels flush, both have slated canopies, the
right hand canopy is a replacement. Single storey lean-to outshut at the left
hand end.
C20 extensions across the back, stone ruble to the left and rendered to the
right where the lower ground storey is open showing the back wall of the
original building with its old cellar doorway.
Interior: Only the ground floor was inspected; its plan has been entirely
rearranged to form public house bars and a restaurant.
