The London Hotel
14.1.74 (including shop to left)
GV II
Coaching inn, now public house and shop. Late C18, altered, and renovation
in progress at time of survey (1988). Dressed granite, brought to courses,
roof of local slate and Welsh slate. Elongated L-shaped plan formed by a
long front range, with a central wagon-passage between the shop to the left
and the public house to the right, and a long rear wing to the right-hand
end. Three storeys and 4+3 bays; the wagon entrance in the 4th bay has a
quoined surround and rectangular lintel supported at the right-hand end by
a cut-away corbel. The 4-bay shop to the left has a modern shop-front at
ground floor, four 12-pane sashed windows at 1st floor (that over th wagon
entrance slightly smaller), and four low 6-pane sashes at 2nd floor. The 3-
bay public house to the right is symmetrical, with a wide Doric porch in
the centre (the top carrying iron railings), flanked by tripartite sashed
windows with lintels scored in imitation of voussoirs; at 1st floor, a 16-
pane sash in the centre and large 25-pane sashes to each side; and at 2nd
floor, altered and enlarged windows breaking through the eaves, with hipped
dormer roofs, now all 20-pane sashes (but formerly like those to the left).
All windows have raised sills and quoined jambs. An inn sign hangs from an
iron bracket at 2nd floor between the 4th and 5th bays. Large gable
chimney stacks. The rear and rear wing are now not of special interest, and
the interior has been altered. (Item forms group with Red Lion Hotel
adjoining to the right, and with telephone kiosk beside the junction
between them.)
