Details

LANGFDRD CHAPEL LANE (South-west side) SP2402-2502 6/96 Lockey House and attached railings 12.9.55 (Formerly listed as Cotswold House) GV II

House, latterly an inn, now reverted to domestic use. Probably C17, remodelled 1719 (datestone) for John Lockey and again in early C19. Uncoursed limestone rubble, regularly coursed with quoins to front; stone slate roofs with coped verges to main range. This has 3 short hip-roofed ranges projecting at right-angles to rear. 2 storeys and attic. 5 windows to first floor, 18-paned glazing bar sashes (second and fourth from left horned) in moulded stone surrounds replacing narrow segmental-headed windows of 1719. Two similar 9-paned glazing bar sashes in moulded surrounds replacing 4 segmental-headed openings on ground floor. Central segmental-headed doorway replaced by moulded round-arched stone surround with projecting keystone; panelled door with St. Andrew's cross pattern to bottom panel and semi-circular fanlight. Two C19 flat-roofed dormers to raised eaves. Left gable end has 2 ogee-arched pigeon nesting holes and ledge below attic window. Datestone "1719" above. Rear: 3 hip-roofed ranges with projecting gullies each have an early C18 mullioned and transomed window on first floor; infilled segmental-headed doorway to centre blocked by lean-to (c.1948). Stone stacks with red brick shafts to corners of main range, probably C18. Interior. Central narrow stone-flagged entrance hall has dado panelling. Early C18 dog-leg staircase to rear has moulded handrail. Square newels and turned balusters to closed string. Panelled window shutters and encased, plastered ceiling beams to front rooms. Small room to left of staircase had fireplace with early C18 stone mantel-shelf; contemporary inset wall cupboard with shell niche. Panelled doors throughout. First floor: front rooms have exposed ceiling beams. Tie beams of earlier roof visible to rear. Attached early C19 spear-headed iron railings on low stone wall to front have superscription "C.HART MAKER WANTAGE". During the house's period as an inn (c.1880-1926) the whole of the first floor could be converted by the removal of partitions into a single club room: it was here that the Langford Whitsun Club met for dinner.
