C18, early C19. Old Coaching Inn, with buildings around a yard: the front
(Early C19) of 2 storeys in 2 sections. The larger taller western part
(of near-symmetrical form) is dominated by a carriageway entrance with
2 square Doric columns and 2 pilasters, supporting an angular 1st floor
bay, with 2 windows to the east and 3 to the west. Red tile hipped roof,
also hipped bay, with moulded wood eaves cornice: at the east end a massive
rectangular stack has 3 tall flues, the outer ones set diagonally. Stucco
walls. Sashes in reveals. The bay has boarded walling and sash windows,
the central being a Venetian light, with the eaves cornice carried above
as a pediment. The eastern part is of 1.1.1 windows, with a single-storeyed
modern extension. Red tile roof, moulded eaves cornice, formed into a
pediment above the slightly projecting centre. Stucco walls. Large sashes,
a large angular ground-floor bay to the west side. The former central
door is now a sash window and the blank panel above it carries a decorative
wrought-iron sign bracket. The former main entrance retains its large
panelled doors but the only entrance on the front is a plain door in the
centre of the west side. A long 2 storeyed red brick range forms an L-
wing from the west and, finishing in a building with exposed timber-framing.
Within the yard is a granary on staddles, with weather-boarded walls and
a red tile ½-hipped roof.
