TL8563NW COLLEGE STREET 639-1/15/281 (West side) 12/07/72 No.50 The Old Beehive


Formerly known as: The Beehive Public House COLLEGE STREET. House, formerly a public house and later a school. C16 core; early C19 alterations and front. Timber-framed, fronted in painted brick; rendered side wall; rear wall in kidney flint with red brick dressings. Slate roof with a wide plain eaves cornice. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar. 2 window range: 12-pane sashes to the 1st storey, 6-pane to the 2nd, all in plain reveals with projecting stone sills. One similar replacement sash to the ground storey and a small single-storey flat- roofed bay containing a 12-pane sash window in a flush cased frame with one 4-pane canted side light. A 4-panel door with moulded pilasters and cornice to the wood doorcase. In the brickwork above the door and window is the blocked elliptical arch of a former wide carriage entry, and there is a similar archway at the rear of the building. INTERIOR: a large main beam with wide chamfer, partly boxed in, spans the whole ground storey and indicates an earlier core and the rearrangement of the interior, probably during conversion into a public house. The cellar has C19 brickwork mixed with older flint rubble and render. A C19 winder stair with ramped handrail and stick balusters. In the attic, the slope of a lower earlier roof is visible in the gable wall. At the rear is a narrow timber-framed and rendered 2-bay range with a pantiled roof, jettied, set at right angles and formerly free-standing, but now linked to the front. Probably C16, but difficult to date as all features are covered. At the back of the yard, a further early C19 outbuilding, formerly 2-storey but now single-storey, rendered, with a central door and two 12-pane sash windows in flush cased frames. This was used as a games room for the public house. A sale notice of 1858 advertises the property as 'The Beehive Beer House'. This is the probable date when The Beehive was transferred to No.21 College Street (qv).
