GV II
Formerly the New Inn, then 3 houses, now one in row, set at slight angle to
street line. C17, C18, C19. Coursed dressed square limestone or rough
rendering, stone slate roofs. A complex of buildings, with a cottage, gable, to
street, left; a centre unit in L-plan, with wing to left, adjoining the cottage
- this part formerly the New Inn; and a third unit with very lofty centre
storey, at some time a schoolroom. C17 cottage has at ground floor three C20
lights, the centre one possibly replacing a door, under a 3-light chamfer
mullion casement with stopped hood, under a 2-light mullioned casement in the
gable which also carries a small stack; the return wall, to left, has a central
recessed C20 door flanked by single lights with recessed chamfer, and with outer
part of stopped hood, cut by insertion of the door. Grilled basement opening to
right. Central block has C18 front on earlier structure, 2 storeys, 3 windows:
at ground floor two wide sashes with margin bars only, and plat band surrounds;
at first floor three 12-pane sashes with plat band and key stone. No doorway,
which was probably to right. Third C19 unit is very lofty two storeys with
attic: at ground floor two 3-light recessed chamfer mullion casements with
stopped hoods, that to right cut short by porch to the adjoining house, and to
left is part of C20 glazed doors in chamfered surround under heavy flat canopy
with moulded edge on stone brackets. At first floor three lofty 18-pane sashes
with plat band and keystone, and above are 2 flush gables with 12-pane sashes.
Gable stack to middle and top block, and to back wing of centre unit. A steep
flight of steps descends to the cellars of the former inn, and a back of pave-
ment kerb, formerly railed, encloses a small area in front of the top unit. The
interior includes two segmental barrel vaulted cellar parallel with the street,
chamfered beams and a good stone stair with stick balusters; large C19 stone
fireplace. The cottage has C17 roof structure and a spiral stair. School room
has coved ceiling.
