TQ 54 NE
5/136 The Flying Dutchman Public
- II

Public House. C17 or earlier origins with extensive remodelling of the circa
1840s. Framed construction, thoroughly underbuilt in brick with some
weatherboard cladding, the C19 front elevation brick with tile-hanging to the
first floor; peg-tile roof; brick stacks.

Plan: South-facing. Double depth plan, 2 rooms wide, the early parts of the
building to the rear (north) and west. Later alterations have obscured the
original arrangement but both the 2-cell, 2-phase west crosswing and the rear
range, roofed on a west east axis, are probably C17. The front block, roofed
parallel to the rear block, is a circa 1840s addition.

Exterior: 2 storeys, the crosswing with an attic. Gabled roofs.
Asymmetrical 2-window front, the gable of the west crosswing to the left, the
main entrance alongside into the south block with a C19 enclosed timber porch
with curly bargeboards with pendants. C20 door into the crosswing to the left
under a pent roof. 2- and 3-light C19 or early C20 small-pane timber
casements. C19 axial stack to the south block. 3 windows to the left (north)
return, which is weatherboarded, with C19 or C20 casement windows with an
axial stack. The rear (north) block has an axial stack with a handmade brick
shaft and C19 cap.

Interior: Largely modernized on the ground floor with internal partitions
altered. The rear block stack has an open fireplace on the west side (in the
lounge bar) with handmade brick jambs, a chamfered timber lintel and a bread

Roof: The west crosswing roof is C17 with a tie-beam, queen posts and clasped
purlins. The roof of the rear wing is largely inaccessible but most of the
rafters appear to have been replaced.
