SY6778NE ST EDMUND STREET 873-1/23/287 (North side) 12/12/53 No.19 The Golden Lion Hotel


Includes: The Golden Lion Hotel ST MARY STREET. Hotel. Late C18 rebuild of C17 inn. Painted Flemish bond brickwork, tile or slate roof. A shallow front range attached to a substantial return wing in St Mary Street. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and attic. The main front has 3 windows, all glazing-bar sashes; at second floor a 12-pane between tripartite 8:12:8-pane, all to flush boxes, above 2 bold canted oriels with 16:16:16-panes and to dentil cornices, on plain deep skirts. Between these is a broad elliptical blind oculus. Ground floor has a small plain sash oriel on wood brackets, and a tripartite sash without bars. The central wide 6-panel door is in panelled reveals, moulded architrave and half-pilaster case with a dentilled entablature; above this is a square pedestal with moulded edge carrying a gilded lion. Left end has a ridge stack. A small plinth and plain bands at first and second floors, with plain eaves band, all of these returned to right, which is a hipped end with a central eaves stack, and 12-pane sash at ground and second floors with a blind light at first floor. Large return range in St Mary Street has a wide-span slate mansard roof with 3 flat-roofed dormers, 2 of these with double sash, above four 12-pane sashes in reveals at first and second floors. Ground floor has a tripartite display window with fascia and cornice, a large tripartite sash with some glazing bars, an arched doorway with part-glazed door, and a pair of doors on 2 deep steps. The exposed right gable has 2 openings to a steel escape stair. No external stacks remain to this range. INTERIOR: has practically nothing of the original detail visible, and has been substantially subdivided for later hotel use. Ground floor facing St Edmund Street has some remnants of early ceiling beams and joists, with the ceiling at a level well below the heads of the C18 windows. It is not clear to what extent this is later modification, but it probably reflects the scale of the earlier building on the site. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 350).
