ST5616SW YEOVIL CP RECKLEFORD (South side)
6/95 No 49 (Glover's Arms Hotel)
Inn with possible C17 origins. Local stone cut and squared with (painted) Ham stone dressings, with Welsh slated roof between coped gables; brick chimney stacks (the tops in modern work) at each end. 2-storey, random facade. The off centre doorway probably of C19, the pair of 2-panelled doors having a shallow segmental arch over, surmounted by a flat hood of shallow projection on simple pattern console brackets; to left of doorway a pair of 2-light hollow chamfered windows with hood moulds, and to the right a 5-light similar window: at first floor level 2-light window on the left, then a 3-light and a 4-light, all without hood moulds. On the East return wall a small arched stair window.
Further mullioned windows to rear but a early C20 2-storey brick extension covers some of the elevation. The interior not fully inspected, but the East room on the ground floor retains a large fireplace (partly restored) and the bulk of the winding staircase to one side of same (having very deep risers), with its arched door- way, still survives.
