Weary Ploughman Public House
Formerly known as: Churston Links Hotel BRIXHAM ROAD Churston
Shown on OS map as Churston Links Hotel.
Public house. Probably early 1860s. Solid rendered walls.
Hipped slated roof. Rendered chimneys with prominent flat
caps. Double-fronted, double-depth plan with secondary block
set back to left. 2 storeys. 3 windows wide with 2 further
windows in secondary block. Doorway flanked by Doric pilasters
supporting entablature. Windows have moulded architraves,
those in ground storey with friezes and cornices that reach to
the sills of the windows above. Barred sashes: 6 over 6 panes
in ground storey, 3 over 6 panes in second storey. Raised band
at cornice-level in ground storey. Deep flat eaves-cornice.
Right side wall is similar; centre doorway with raised moulded
surround and entablature. Barred sashes in left-hand window of
each storey. Left side wall has 1 window of the same design
per storey; also with barred sashes, except for the upper sash
in ground storey. Secondary block (which lies nearest Brixham
Road) is similar to the main building, but with plain window
surrounds; barred sashes in front and left side walls.
INTERIOR: only public rooms in ground storey inspected; these
have been considerably altered. The building adjoins Churston
Station and was presumably the Station Hotel mentioned in
directories from 1866 onwards. The station, originally known
as Brixham Road, was on the Dartmouth and Torbay Railway and
was opened in 1861. The Torbay and Brixham Railway, which ran
from here to Brixham, was opened in 1868.
