Hotel, now public house, c.1850. Brick (in Flemish bond) on a stone plinth with stone dressings, all now painted, slate roof. Two storeys, three bays with rusticated quoins and strongly projecting cornice. The slightly projecting porch also has rusticated quoins and an inset semi-circular arch. On each each side of it is a tall tripartite window, with a moulded architrave and mullions in the form of attenuated pilasters, which all reach down to the plinth. (A similar but plainer window can be seen at the back on the first floor). On the first floor all windows have moulded architraves and sills supported on consoles. In the centre above the cornice is a rectangular panel, supported by volutes, which bears the word HOTEL in low relief. Gable stacks. History: The Preston and Wyre railway arrived at Kirkham in 1840. Included as a good example of its type.
