MERTON MERTON SS 5212 22/152 Village stores and Malt Scoop Inn - GV II

Shop with adjoining house and inn attached to it. May contain some C17 fabric but much extended in C18 and C19 and remodelled in C20. Thatch roof hipped to front wing of inn otherwise gabled. The inn has 2 brick axial stacks, one large and probably the earlier, and a projecting rendered rubble stack at its right gable end with brick shaft. The house adjoining the shop has a brick stack at its left gable end. Plan: The various sections form a T-shaped plan. The main range of the inn is probably the earliest part of the building although it exhibits few dateable features, and has a 3-room plan somewhat altered. The wing added in front of its left-hand end is likely to be an C18 addition. Adjoining that wing and forming a parallel one is the shop which is of one storey and quite likely dates only to the C19. Set back from it and extending to the left is a probably C18 2-room plan cottage, its left-hand room heated by an end stack. Exterior: 2 storeys. Both buildings are 1-shaped with parallel projecting wings at the front. The inn to the right has an asymmetrical 2 window front of C20 casements - 2-light on the first floor and 3-light on the ground floor of its main range. C19 panelled and glazed door to left under late C19 gabled doorhood on wooden brackets. Projecting from the left end is the wing which has one window on each floor, the first floor one below a small gable. Plank door to their left. A small C19 outbuilding with hipped slate roof projects from the right end of the inn. Parallel to its thatched wing is the shop which is single storey with a large C20 bay window on its end wall. On its inner face is a central doorway with double part-glazed doors under a similar doorhood to the inn. The cottage to the left and recessed from the shop has a symmetrical 3 window front of early C19 12-pane sashes and a central C19 panelled and part-glazed door with similar hood above it. Interior of Inn exhibits no early features but some may be concealed.
