14/21 Whitewell Hotel
Hotel, 1836, with mid C19th additions and possible earlier remains. 2 storeys
with attics. The part dated 'T 1836' on the 1st floor, at the west, is of
slobbered rubble with slate roof, in a C17th vernacular style and either a
good 'copy of the earlier style or a rebuilding of an early house. It has a
cross-wing to the left and a gable to the right, both with copings and ball
finials. The windows are mullioned with outer chamfer and inner hollow
chamfer and hoods. The cross-wing has a 5-light window on each floor, the
gabled section one of 4 lights on each floor. In the centre is one of
2 lights to the right of the door and one of 3 lights on the 1st floor. The
treatment of the door surround is similar to that of the windows. The chimney
is to the left of the door. Inside, no original features are visible on the
ground floor of this part of the building. The remainder of the facade is of
squared sandstone with slate roof and appears to be of 3 builds, all in a
similar style. Chamfered quoins at the east gable and sashed windows with
plain stone surrounds at the fear suggest that it may be a conversion of
buildings in a classical style. It has tall mullioned windows with stone
surrounds with inner hollow chamfer and outer chamfer, and hoods. The left-
hand (west)section has a gabled porch with a 4-light window on each side.
On the 1st floor are 3 2-light windows with a one-light window on each side.
Above is a dormer with a 4-light window and a coping with ball finials. The
4 right-hand bays have 2-light windows, each light having a sashed window with
glazing bars and margin lights. The 2nd of these bays has a steep gabled
dormer with a 5-light stepped mullioned windqwwithhqod, and a coping with
ball finials. The east gable has a one-storey porch with chamfered quoins
and a plain stone door surround with semi-circular head, moulded imposts, and
keystone. To its left are mullioned windows, with a sashed window with
glazing bars above on the 1st floor. There are numerous chimneys, both on
and to one side of the axis of the roof.
