The Crown Inn

House, now inn. C16, remodelled early C18 with later additions and
alterations. Red brick, timber frame, mostly planted externally,
machine tiled roofs. Hall and cross-wing type converted. 2 storeys
with gable lit attics; 1:3:1; windows all C20 leaded casements, transoms
to those in central (hall?) range, rubbed brick flat arches, fluted
keystones and bracketed sills to ground floor. Projecting 2 storey
bay to left may mark the position of a former oriel, C20 central gabled
porch. Plastered C18 modillion eaves cornice. Cross wings have much
planted timbering above ground floor and late C19 cut bargeboards.
Prominent chimneys to right of left hand cross wing with multiple stacks
on massive sandstone base. Paired stacks to right of (hall?) range.
Right hand cross wing is presumably a C19 addition but that on left
retains partial jettying and original timbering on its left hand side.
