CULLOMPTON FORE STREET (west side), ST 00 NW Cullompton 10/92 No. 2 (The Manor House Hotel) - 24.10.51 GV II* Hotel, formerly a merchant's house. Built 1603 for Thomas Trock, clothier; extended and embellished, 1718. Coursed rubble to ground floor, also right-hand end wall and left-hand party wall; timber framed above, under 4 gabled-end slate roofs. The building occupies the front of a medieval tenement; 3-room, through-passage plan, with lower-end (right of passage) rear wing; rear extension and front shell porch of 1718. A full, detailed report by John R L Thorp, with elevations and plans, in MS, dated June 1983, should be consulted before any decisions are made regarding this building. Parlour heated by left-hand end stack; hall by rear lateral stack; lower- end by (now dismantled) right-hand end stack; the chamber above the hall was certainly heated and the other 1st floor chambers probably heated, as part of the early-C17 design. 3 storeys. Front: 4 bays, each bay separately gabled; ground floor with main entrance marking former through passage right of centre now under shell hood on shaped brackets and Tuscan columns, with panelled reveals. The porch and the three 5-light casement windows, 21 leaded panes per light, date from 1718. 1st floor: 3 oriels; those to hall and parlour chambers each of 6 lights; that to lower-end chamber (extending over passage) of 10 lights; all with ovolo moulded mullions and transom, the latter with central King-post; 3 horizontal glazing bars to all, with some elaborate iron latches; attention is drawn to the detailed comments on the ferramenta in Thorp's report. Oriel supported on scroll brackets and coved between, 1 to each room under separate gable, all renewed. Scroll brackets support roof valleys. Facade flanked by stone side walls, corbelled out at 2nd floor level; each bears inscription stone, 'TT' and bench mark to the left, '1603, T.T.' to the right. Right-hand elevation (Tiverton Lane) retains its original guttering with vine leaf decoration. Rear with rainwater head dated 1718; brick with burnt headers; large round-headed window lights stairwell. 2 of the C17 gable-walls survive exposed. Interior: internal partitions all timber framed; hall cross beam (now concealed) with double ovolo-moulding and run-out stops; hall chamber fireplace (now concealed) with ovolo moulded sandstone jambs; C17 newel staircase survives at 1st and 2nd floor levels; one of the 2nd floor rooms retains its square-headed, ovolo-moulded door surround. C18 stairwell, stairs with flat handrail, square newel posts, twisted balusters and moulded closed string. C18 round-headed arch to stairs; hall with bolection panelling, and - to the ceiling - ogee cornice and 2 arch panels (copied on the renovated lower-end ceiling in the early 1980s); contemporary plaster cornices elsewhere. Roof: 4 separate roofs with gabled ends towards street; 2 trusses to each, morticed and pegged at apex; collar dovetailed and fixed by nails; 2 sets of through purlins; front bays with wind braces. Reference: this report is heavily dependent upon the detailed survey by J R L Thorp (1983); Mr Thorp kindly made the survey available to the- resurvey team (1985).
