SX 78 NW DREWSTEIGNTON SANDYPARK
7/122 Sandy Park Inn
Public house. Probably C18, enlarged in C19, and again in C20. Plastered stone rubble, maybe some cob, stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof, felt roof and corrugated iron to C20 extension.
Plan: main block faces south-east. It now has a 2-room plan with gable-end stacks.
In fact the larger right-hand room (now the bar) was the original part and then had a 2-room plan. The 2 rooms have been knocked together and the former middle room had an axial stack backing onto the left room, but this stack is now disused. The left end room is probably a C19 extension. C20 service outshots to rear, one of them 2 storeys. Main block is 2 storeys.
Exterior: regular, nearly symmetrical 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. Between the window bays are 2 doorways, both contain C20 plank doors in solid frames behind C20 gabled and thatch-roofed porches. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior: has been extensively altered in the C20 when the building was converted to its present public house layout. The crossbeam (or position of the former crosswall) has been replaced by a C20 RSJ boxed in with timber. The central fireplace however is probably C18; it is built of granite ashlar and its lintel is obscured The roof was not inspected.
Sandy Park Inn forms part of an attractive group of listed buildings on the crossroads here.
