5/50 The Plough Inn (Eaton Village)


Public House. Mid C17 with later alterations and additions. A building with two parallel ranges connected by a short link to give an "H" plan, but originally a principal range (to the west) and a rear service wing (to the east) which survives in part (now the short link between the ranges). The main interest is in the rear (west) range which is a two-room plan, two storeys with attic. Timber framing with rendered panels and stone dressed brickwork with asbestos slate roof. Some stone and Welsh slates. The west wing 12 Frame panels and smoke bay (to N) in rendered brickwork x 6 panel wide gable-end. Two-course high stone plinth, flush stone quoins and dressings to south side of blocked door opening. Above the plinth there are 16 courses of brickwork and a projecting stone band on which sits a 4 panel high timber frame; the oak wallplate continues through to the gable. The rails are normally cut between studs but one panel down from the wallplate there is a continuous slightly projecting rail which continues as a stone band in the north rendered panel and across the north stone dressed, rendered, gable-end at the same level. The south gable-end and east side of this wing are also timber framed. 2 C20 4-light leaded mullion windows to the west elevation and 2 3-light windows to the south gable-end. The east wing is early C19, 2 storeys, 2 bays in Flemish Bond originally with sashes and a rectangular overlight to the door, now with canted bays and C20 casements all with leaded glazing. C20 Oak boarded door, gable-end stacks. The spaces between the wings both sides of the link are filled with lower additions with lean-to roofs, and a modern brick porch with hipped stone slab roof has been added to the west elevation of the west wing. Internally Inglenook with original bressumer timber framing in internal walls, exposed ceiling joists and beams, dogleg staircase set in angle between W range and rear wing. Some wattling survives as wall panel infill. There are exposed ceiling joists and beams in the north part of the east wing but a fire which destroyed the timbers in south part of this wing probably brought about the early C19 rebuilding. Good set of raised panelling and cupboards with butterfly hinges, mid-C17 and possibly original (lst floor). Roof structure: 2 bays with narrow smoke bay to N. Principals with king strut, side purlins and ridge piece. Side purlin roof to wing which extends only one bay, the rest replaced by the C19 E range.
