return and brick stack rising from eaves on left return, another brick stack at rear of left gable end. L-plan with
extension at rear. Two storeys, 3 bays, 16-pane sash windows and semi-circular headed window above semi-circular headed
entrance, fanlight with radiating glazing bars, panelled door. Three bay right return with lower independently roofed
extension beyond. Interior much altered. Recorded in 1710 as the Anchor and later known as the Bell, the name was

of the front of the inn. (VCH Somerset, Vol 6, forthcoming).
