with scrolled brackets; triangular pediments to ground-floor windows with
copings and globe finials. Oval datestones in outer gables and oval name-stone

porch consisting of square piers, fluted pilasters with bases, fluted capitals
and scrolled brackets, elliptical arches with panelled intrados and spandrels,
moulded cornice and balustrade with drop balusters, panelled square dies with
pear-shaped finials and moulded rail. Richly-ornamented plaster vault within

craftsmen. Levi was the architect of the village war memorial (q.v.) and is said
(occupier of Inglenook - March 1987) to have worked on the restoration of
Burford Priory. The cant of the left-hand bay of Inglenook is evidence of the
earlier core of the building, said to have been 2 cottages. The entrance
formerly consisted of 2 separate doors flanking a central window, replaced by
the present arrangement in the late C20.
