10/157 The Old Inn
12/09/55 (Formerly listed as Cottage
opposite and to the West of
Mill Farm Cottage)
Former inn, now house. Originally a C17 single range, with rear outshots added
and front raised C18-early C19. Outshots altered to parallel rear range c.1950.
Incorporates carved stone fragments, some from Bourton Place, former manor house
of the Hungerford family, demolished c.1800. Coursed rubble limestone, 2-span
roof of stone slates, rebuilt rubble stone chimneys to right and between right
bays. 2 storeys, 3 bays. 3-light wooden casements with horizontal glazing bars,
renewed C20, all with wooden lintels. Ground floor lintels are old, upper
lintels renewed. Ground floor of right bay has 3-light window with
hollow-chamfered stone mullions and Tudor hoodmould, possibly not original to
house. C20 board door with C20 wooden lintel between right bays. Over door is a
C18 carved stone tablet carved with military trophy, almost certainly from
Bourton Place. Another small square tablet below eaves between left bays carries
simple motifs from the Hungerford arms. Below eaves to centre is a tablet dated
ITM 1655, which may be original to house, but if so was re-set when front
raised. Interior has C17 stop-chamfered spine beam in left bay, winder stair in
right bay on axis with stack, and altered trusses with cranked principals.
