4/107 Crown Hotel


Hotel, formerly The Crown Inn. Mid C16 and lace C17, with C19 mock-Tudor
front. 2 storeys and attics; cellars below part. Timber-framed and rendered;
plaintiled roofs. 2 internal chimney-stacks and one end stack, all with plain
red brick shafts. Coved cornice. Range of 5 large 2-light casement windows
with moulded wooden hood-moulds. A wide matching moulded surround to the
central entrance, and a small 4-centred mock-Tudor doorway with crowns on the
capitals. The building is complex, with extensions and 2 long wings at the
rear. The basic range, which covers most of the front, had a 3-cell plan,
with internal chimney-stack and cross-entry, jettied along the front. The
framing of this range is plain but high, the only decorative features being
the 2 service doorways, to the left of the present entrance, which have 4-
centred arched heads and moulded spandrels, and a similar doorhead blocked up
in the wall to the side of the chimney-stack. At the north end of the front,
a C17 addition, also with exposed timbering, extends in a long wing to the
rear. A late C17 extension behind the centre of the front range has twin
gables facing eastwards and contains a fine stair with turned balusters, open
string with applied brackets, and a wreathed handrail.
