SD5205 SCHOOL LANE 783-1/7/76 (South West side) 25/06/73 No.47 The Owl Inn


Public house. Probably earlier C17, but remodelled, altered and enlarged. Remains of timber-framing in east gable wall, but otherwise coursed squared sandstone rubble, with slate roofs. Irregular plan composed of former 2-unit main range with rear wing, additions to the rear and at the right-hand end, 2 low storeys; 2 windows; a blocked round-headed doorway offset left of centre, with dressed voussoirs and raised keystone; enlarged square windows at ground floor with raised sills and wedge lintels, and transomed 3-light casements; 2 pairs of small coupled 9-pane sashed windows at 1st floor. The left gable wall has rendered cladding at ground floor, but above that the original timber-framing is exposed, with corner posts, 2 intermediate posts, one rail, angle-braces in the upper panels, and a principal-rafter roof truss with vertical struts to the principals. At the right-hand end is a single-storey continuation. INTERIOR: remodelled, but the 2nd bay has 2 large quarter-round moulded lateral beams and a chamfered beam at the junction with the rear wing; and the 1st bay has a similar stop-chamfered lateral beam terminating at a C20 beam which has replaced a former longitudinal partition.
