SP5822S (South side)
3/82 No.40 (Kings Arms Hotel)

Hotel. C18, possibly partly earlier. Rendered walls with some stucco dressings;
Welsh-slate and plain-tile roofs with brick stacks. L-plan. 3 storeys, and 2
storeys plus attics. 6-window front has the entrance in bay 3 with a 6-panel
door, ornamental overlight, and a doorcase with fluted pilasters and entablature
carrying the royal arms; secondary entrance in bay 5 is now a window; all other
windows, including those of 3-bay range returning on left, have 12-pane sashes.
Roofs are concealed by plain parapets. 2-window range, extending rear wing and
incorporating the carriage entry, has a steep-pitched tiled roof with paired
brick stacks, and is probably early C18; it has flat-headed roof dormers, and
each side wall has a Venetian window with pilastered mullions and jambs. A
further steep-roofed range, to right of the main range, extends to rear of No.39
(q.v.) and probably shares the C17 stack with it. Rear of main range has C20
extensions. Interior not inspected.
