SY6778NE MAIDEN STREET 873-1/23/221 (West side) 14/06/74 No.40 The Ship Inn


Inn. C17, late C19 alterations. Painted Portland stone ashlar, slate roof. PLAN: single-depth set with a gable end to the Quay, and with entrance across the corner; the building is part of a larger group of common date, continuing N along Maiden Street, (RAFA Association, qv), and returning to St Edmund Street (Duke of Cornwall, qv). EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic; windows are generally stone mullioned casements, set flush, with double chamfer. The S end, facing the Quay, has a small 2-light to the attic, above a larger 2-light under a label mould which continues round the quadrant corner. At the ground floor is a C20 recessed multi-pane bow, with a reeded pilaster surround and dentil cornice. The gable has a central ashlar stack with thin capping, and saddle-back coping, swept to haunches and returned at the quadrant to the right. The sunk quadrant corner has a large 2-light wooden casement with transom above the panelled doors with a recessed panel over. The long front to Maiden Street has three 6-pane sash Victorian gabled dormers above 3-light casement with the label course brought round from the S side, and, far right, 4-light casement with label, and a large 4-pane sash. Ground floor windows are late C19 insertions, but in similar detail to the originals, with a 3-light plus dentilled transom, under label dropped at the ends, and a smaller single light the same, a wide light with steel multi-pane light with spandrel and label, and a 2-light with external shutters. To the far right, and in part under the adjoining property, is a wide doorway with moulded 4-centred stone lintel. A lofty brick stack at the eaves between the first 2 dormers. INTERIOR: partly inspected only but appears to retain little of the original detail. The loss of interior detail in this and the adjoining buildings is to be regretted but they still present an important series of early fronts to the streets. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 349).
