5/49 The Red Lion P.H.

Public house. Probably built early C16 as a coaching inn; altered and
extended C17 and C19. 3-cell lobby-entrance plan. 2 storeys, partly with
attics. Timber-framed and plastered; the left hand parapet gable of C17 red
brick with gable chimney. Thatched roof, hipped at right hand end, with a
thatched gable casement dormer. Central C17 chimney of red brick. C19 small-
pane sash windows. C20 pantiled gabled entrance porch with boarded and
battened door. A 3-bay central hall has a complete early C16 crown post roof;
the 2 open trusses have cambered arch-braced tie-beams with square crown-
posts. One crown post has both braces to collar-purlin, and long rising
braces from the tie-beam. A large chimney was inserted into probable cross-
passage position in C17, forming lobby entrance. The left-hand cell (now
restaurant) may be an early C17 extension to the earlier building.
