7.9.51 The Running Horse PH


House, now public house. Probably later C15, altered, and with early C19 addition
to rear. Timber frame covered with pebble-dashed render painted white, roof of
red tiles but with 4 courses of stone slates over the eaves; the rear addition
also rendered and painted white, with slate roof. The principal element is L-plan
consisting of a short open-hall (now ceiled) parallel to the street with a
receding 2-bay storeyed cross-wing at the right-hand end. Two low storeys, the
upper floor of the wing jettied to the front; the hall range has a doorway next
to the junction with the wing, under a simple pitched canopy, a 6-pane fixed
window to the left and a small 2-light casement under the eaves at 1st floor;
the gable wall of the wing has a 2-fight horizontal sliding sash offset left at
ground floor and a 2-light casement in the jettied upper floor. The left gable of
the hall range has a large external chimney stack, inserted doorways each side
of this and small casement windows of one and 2 lights above them. The right-
hand return wall of the wing has an extruded chimney to the front bay (now
enclosed at ground floor by a small flat-roofed toilet block), a 2-light casement
at 1st floor of the 2nd bay, and various additions below and to the rear which
are not of special interest. The rear addition is rectangular, 2 storeys and 2
bays, with a central doorway and rectangular bay window immediately to the
right of this, a 16-pane sashed window to the left and 2 similar windows at 1st
floor. Interior: some timber-framing is exposed at ground floor, but the principal
features of interest are visible only on the upper floors (which were not
accessible at the time of the survey): a moulded truss in the hall range, and a
matching open truss in the wing, with a crown-post roof. References: LDLHS
