Puckeridge TL 38 23 STANDON HIGH STREET (west side) 6/24 No 24 (formerly listed as The 4.12.51 Old George Inn)


Inn, now a house. C16 or earlier, mid C19 Gothic front. Timber frame roughcast, S gable of panelled fan pargetting, front of red brick with diaper and chamfered white brick dressings and plinth, half-timbered jettied part on right. Steep old red tile roofs. Probably a large open-hall house in origin, with 2-storeyed gabled crosswing at N, square rear kitchen block at SW and gabled stair turret in the angle. High carriageway on N with a room over, separately roofed but with a mock half-timbered C19 jettied gable added on street front duplicating the original jettied timbered gable of the crosswing. Picturesque irregular 2 storeys and cellar street front on E, 5 windows long. On the left a 3 window part corresponding to the former hall with a heavy Tudor- style door up 2 steps on the right of a central 2-storeyed rectangular gabled bay window, with a further window beyond. There is a higher-set window in the brick lower floor fronting the crosswing with a flush cross-window in the jettied upper floor with heavy moulded bargeboard to the red brick nogged timber framed gable. This has heavy bull-nosed joist ends but slighter joists were used when the Cl9 duplicated gable was built alongside to the N. The main range has a wide-span clasped- purlin roof replacing the original, with a long curved soot- blackened timber incorporated. Clasped-purlin roof to kitchen with a large gable chimney. Central chimney in the hall nearer N end. Original framework of rear wall with heavy diamond shaped mullioned 2-light window preserved in depth of structure. Moulded timber corbel added to support axial beam in hall. Formerly The Old George Inn. (RCHM (1911) 209).
