SY6778NE HIGH STREET 873-1/23/181 (North side) 14/06/74 The Boot Inn


Inn. Mid C17, much modified internally. Rendered, slate roof. A single-depth 2-heated-room plan with gable stacks, possibly originally with cross-passage. 2 storeys, 3 windows, all recessed hollow-chamfer stone mullioned casements; at eaves level three 4-light, and at ground floor two 5-light with labels. A C19 central door with transom light is flanked by side-lights, all under straight lintel. Brick stack to the plain left gable, and rendered stack to the right; this wall has a doorway to the S of the fireplace. The back has 2-light small-pane casements, a central lean-to extension, and a flat-roofed addition. Some transverse moulded beams remain to the ground floor. This is a rare survival in a part of the town which was subject of extensive clearance in the mid C20. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 343).
