9/5 Shepherds Arms Public 15.2.66 House.

- II

Public House. Timber frame of 1538, north range (Bartlett); the rest 1593, with later cladding; extensively modernised in 1964. Rendered walls. Stone slate roof. Two storeys. A north-south range (the southern part slightly wider) and an east-west range giving a 'T' plan. The front is of 3 bays with a projecting gabled wing to right (the north wing). Most openings, including the lean-to porch to bay 3, are C20. The wing has an exposed king-post truss in its gable. Rear: the south wing has an exposed king-post truss with a quadrant moulding to the tie-bean and many housings in the king-post probably for several arrangements of studding. Later flat-roofed additions to rear not of special interest. Broad projecting lateral stack to right return, south end. Interior: fireplace in south wing, relating to southern projecting stack, with a sunken quadrant moulding to the jambs, a raised keystone and a relieving arch above; several original beams and joists. Plaster date plaques of 1593 and fleur-de-lys have been reset as decorations throughout the building. The building was formerly a gentleman's residence known as Nether Hall whose earliest known occupants were the Binns family around 1600. Later occupants were Lawrence Horrocks, his son, William Coppendale (until 1724), John Scholefield and John Allott of Crigglestone. It became the Shepherds Arms beer house in the 1850s. K. Bartlett.
