Listing Text

ST 7693

No. 9 (Court House)

Dwelling, formerly supposed to have been a Court House. C17. Rendered, welsh slate
roof. Wide frontage, modest span structure, possibly designed originally as one large
room but now in two storeys, with roof space having trusses raised from ties on
rudimentary brackets (as elsewhere in Wotton). Two storeys, four-windowed,
three-light casements irregularly spaced; modern door.
Upper storey interior, two plaster panels now whitewashed : left end royal coat of
arms, James II (? See Lindley p 129) and right end Berkeley arms; also two transverse
beams, one with fleur de lis and other with Tudor rose (or acorn?) rosettes, also
whitewashed. Position of decorative escutcheons suggests that ceiling formerly
higher, or open roof.
