The North Bar was built in 1409 at a cost of £96 0s 11½d. 2 storeys in brick
with room over archway. North face shows buttresses framing a depressed pointed
arch over which is a late C17 cartouche of arms in carved stone. 2 blind
niches and 1 window have trefoil heads and label moulds with finials. Under the
embattled parapet is a cogged string course. South face, main opening has label
mould. 3 trefoil arches are grouped inside the strings arranged gablewise
surmounted by finial. 3 brick shields. 2 small modern windows. Cogged string
and embattled parapet lined in by a pilaster strip on corbels. Interior of main
opening has plain brick vault to contour of arch. Rib vaulted in 2 bays with
single chamfered brick ribs and portcullis groove. 2 modern side openings
outside the original building for pedestrians. The house is of early C18
origin, refronted by William Hawe in 1866, attached to the Bar on the east.
2 storeys in stuccoed brick with moulded egg and dart architraves to windows.
Band. Deeply moulded eaves cornice. Parapet with vase-shaped balusters of
square plan. Giant pilasters framing each elevation, with urns on the parapet
above. 1:2 windows on east face, 4 on north, 3 on west. Front door on each
side has wood case with 2 reeded attached Doric columns, 2 side lights, fanlight,
6-panel door and entablature broken over columns. Plain tile roof. Tower with
4 round-arched windows has slated roof and delicate cast iron balustrade. Some
of the interior features date from William Middleton's alterations of c.1793-4
including a chimneypiece with cast 'Adam' ornament. Staircase apparently C19,
probably replacing the principal C18 one, as it has early C18 wainscot with
moulded panels to dado height, as does the hall. The stair which was formerly
the back stair to the two houses when one, is C18, altered; closed string, plain
newels, moulded handrail, and the lower flight has C19 flat-cut ornamented
balusters. Nearly all door frames have early C19 reeded architraves. NMR
Country Life article 19.11.59.

Railings to north side of house have 4 piers with C18 stonework incorporated in
later brickwork, Doric pilasters, imposts crowned by carved consoles, archi-
trave, pulvinated frieze, cornice and ball finials. Early C19 standard railings
on brick wall, joining old 3 metre high brick garden wall with stone coping.
Graded as a group with the house and Bar.
