Details

TM 23 NW LEVINGTON CHURCH LANE WITH STRATTON HALL Ship Inn 5/15 The Ship Inn -

- II

Public house, probably C14. A rare example of an aisled hall house of modest status; greatly altered from C15 onwards. One storey and attics; by C17 converted to a 3-cell house retaining the rear aisle only. Timber-framed and rough-cast. Thatched roof with internal chimney of red brick; a C19 lead-clad dormer with small-pane sash window. C19 sash windows. C19 entrance doors, each with a pentice board on brackets. A central aisled open truss has empty trenches for passing-braces, and dovetail housings for tie-beam braces on the cambered tie-beam. The aisle at the front has gone, but the arcade-plate remains with housings for lap-jointed arcade-braces. The closed truss to right shows evidence for a further bay, open to the hall at ground level, but with a loft supported on knees above; this, and the closed truss at the left- hand gable, may be C15 renewals, but still of aisled form. The coupled-rafter roof may be original, but extended C15 and C17/C18. The building is believed to have been a pair of estate cottages until the C19, when it became a public House called originally "The Musket".
