3/46 Cock and Bell 7/2/52 (Formerly listed as Cock and Bell Inn) GV II*

Public house. C.1400 and C16. Timber framed and plastered but with frame exposed on front and north flank. Roofs are gabled and of peg tile. Of 2 storeys and of 'H' plan form with crosswings at north and south ends. North crosswing is jettied on north and west faces with a dragon post with moulded capital, original jetty brackets and double bracing on the front. A 3 light window on the corner has glazed hollow chamfered mullions. The 'hall' block is contemporary with this and was formerly jettied along its front. This part is now concealed by a parapetted single storey infill block of white plastered brick. The south C16 crosswing has exposed framing showing cills of former pair of oriel windows and 2 original jetty brackets. On the upper floor flank an arch headed window opening is now blocked with plaster. A large stack projects through the flat roofed extension against the flank of this wing. Windows are a mixture of C18 double hung sash windows with small panes and C20 casements. Under the north jetty is a canted C18 bay window of double hung sashes. Internally, the north crosswing is of 2 bays with chamfered girts with a cambered central tie beam on knee brackets and a crown post roof with longitudinal braces. In the upper floor a narrow arch headed door leads to the first floor chamber or the hall. This appears to be contemporary and similar to the crosswing whichhas soffit tennoned floor joists and a possibly original rear lean-to. This curious structure is of one very large bay with traces of old floor opening for former smoke hood. The south crosswing of the C16 has a moulded and arch headed parlour door and moulded bridging joists on moulded impost blocks. This wing is of 3 bays and the rear chamber has another blocked arch headed window to the rear yard. To the rear of the main building is a range of attached 2 and single storey outbuildings some with pantile and some with peg tile roofs. A single storey C20 block with gable peg tile roof is attached to the rear of the north wing. RCHM 13.
