SS4526 MARKET PLACE 842-1/6/164 (East side) 19/03/73 New Inn Hotel
Hotel. Early C19, altered mid C19; late C19 alterations at rear. Possibly incorporates parts of a C17/C18 building. Solid rendered walls. Hipped slate roof. Old brick chimney on ridge; others at rear. Plan of 2 or 3 rooms deep and 3 rooms wide with off-centre entrance-passage leading to staircase behind the middle room. 3 storeys with 2 lower storeys at rear, where the ground falls away; 4-window range. Doorway between the 2 left-hand ground-storey windows. The 2 upper-storey windows to right are set slightly apart, as if this side of the building was a later addition. 6-panelled front door with deep porch having columns with foliated capitals. Above the porch and extending across the whole building at first-floor level, is a balcony with patterned iron railing (right-hand end missing). Windows have moulded architraves and mostly barred sashes; 8 over 8 panes in ground storey, 6 over 6 panes in second storey, 3 over 6 panes in third storey. The 2 left-hand second-storey windows differ in having French windows with 4 panes per light. Between the 2 windows above is an inserted 2-light wood casement with 3-panes per light. Sill-band in second storey, partly concealed by later balcony. Modillioned eaves cornice. Left side-wall to Bridge Street has windows with 6-paned sashes and moulded architraves, some of the sashes paired within a single architrave. The rear part is a storey lower with a C17/C18-style modillioned eaves-cornice. The rear elevation has been considerably remodelled in late C19, including a gabled bay window with exposed timber-framing (clearly visible from the other side of the river). INTERIOR: ground storey has been considerably altered in late C20, but original wooden open-well stair survives with thin square balusters and shaped step-ends. Upper storeys not inspected.
