SY6779SE ST NICHOLAS STREET 873-1/20/230 (West side) 12/12/53 The White Hart Public House (Formerly Listed as: LOWER BOND STREET (South side) No.20) (Formerly Listed as: LOWER BOND STREET (South side) The White Hart Hotel)


Includes: No.20 LOWER BOND STREET. Hotel. Early C17. Portland stone ashlar, front range rendered, slate roofs. PLAN: symmetrical single-room depth front range has a narrow wing to the left, and a broader range to the right, incorporating the former No.20, Lower Bond Street; between the rear ranges is the gabled early stair turret. Later low ranges have been added to the left (S), and across the rear, enclosing a small courtyard. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attics, the front to Nicholas Street was completely refenestrated in the mid C19, with plain sashes. There are 3 flat-roofed dormers above broad canted 2-storey bays with moulded cornices at each level. At first floor is a central sash, above the projecting square porch with glazed doors and cheeks in square pilasters and responds; a C20 door beyond the bay at each end, under the continuation of the bay cornices. The cornices have dentils to the porch and left half of the front only. A small plinth, returned to the gable ends, and a plain coped parapet set between the scrolled kneelers to saddle-back coped gables with square ashlar stacks at either end, to cappings with very small dentils. The right gable is plain, but with a large 3-panel door in pilasters, with entablature. This front, to Lower Bond Street, continues with a front rebuilt in the late C19, 'stitched in' at the right-hand end to the earlier ashlar coped gable. The centre section has a good 2-light sash raking dormer in a tiled roof above an 8:12:8-pane oriel, and at ground floor 3 plain sashes in flush surrounds. The front gable, in the same plane as the remainder, has a 2-light hollow-chamfer mould stone casement with label above a 4:12:4-pane sash, also with label course. Ground floor has 2

plain sashes. The return gable has a glazed door in pilaster surround. This gable has a small terminal stack, and simple coping, the other has saddle-back coping. The S side has a rubble gable, with a blocked attic light in a flush chamfered surround, and, at first floor, a 2-light recessed chamfer casement with label. Beyond is the lower gabled wing, with coping and kneelers, and a large blocked 3-light casement with label. The stair turret at the rear has a coped gable with kneelers, and is in good ashlar. There are sundry additions at low level. INTERIOR: the ground floor has been substantially modified; on the inner wall of the range to the right is a former 2-light window in a stone wall, with hollow-chamfer mullions, and the front room, left, has a wide fireplace with a flat 4-centred stone lintel, the mouldings partly broken off. The wide spiral stone staircase, in a half-cylindrical well, has the treads roughly shaped to the soffits, and carried to corbels on the outer wall; it continues through the upper storey in simplified form and the central stone newel finishes with a slightly rounded capping and fluted sides. The upper room to the right has fine bolection-mould panelling, and a C19 fire surround with reeding and paterae. The ceiling, which continues across the whole of the front range at this level, although interrupted by later partitions, is in richly moulded plasterwork in a series of diamonds with fleur-de-lys enrichment. The roof was not fully inspected, but appears to have been replaced in the C19. The attics are not in use, and the floor structure there is in poor condition. One of the more substantial early buildings of the town, at the time of survey surrounded by dereliction or mid C20 development. No.20 Lower Bond Street listed on 18.6.70.
