SY6878NW TRINITY STREET 873-1/24/397 (East side) 12/12/53 No.16 Old Rooms Inn


House, later assembly rooms and public house, now offices. Late C16 (RCHME). Large dressed and coursed Portland stone block, tile roof with 2 courses of stone slate to the eaves. PLAN: originally a single-depth 2-room block with central throughway, and full-height projecting porch with eaves level above the main roof. The property had a rear overlooking the harbour; this is now covered by the early C19 range facing Cove Row. EXTERIOR: Trinity Street front is symmetrical, in 2 storeys, 3 windows, all recessed hollow-mould stone mullion casements, set flush, and with a continuous moulded drip-course at first floor, with a 6-light each side of the porch, with a 4-light to the front and 2-light on the returns. Ground floor has a 4-light casement and a doorway each side of the porch, under a moulded label with dropped ends; the doorway to the left has been blocked, and to the right is plank with vertical battens. The porch has, to the front, a square doorway to a plain lintel on a 4-panel flush door. To the N is a wide plank door under a flat basket-arch head with bold keystone, and moulded architrave. A large brick stack, back right. The long early C19 rear range is set at right-angles to the early building. It is in Flemish bond brickwork with hipped slate roof, in 2 storeys, 4 windows; at first floor 12-pane sashes in reveals and to brick voussoirs. The whole ground floor is in large glazed panels with pilasters, to a deep cornice with modillions, which returns to Cove Street. The 2-pane lights have 3-pane transom lights. Under the second window is a glazed door with transom light, and splayed across the outer corner is a further similar door. In Cove Street are 2-and-a-half bays as the front, with 2 sashes at first floor. There are 2 ridge stacks, a bold moulded cornice, and the rear wall is rendered. INTERIOR: ground floor appears to have been opened up and no early beams are visible. A blocked fireplace to rear of room to right, with a deep 4-centred lintel, and behind this a large brick stack. HISTORICAL NOTE: in 1618 the home of Thomas Giear, and in the C18 used as assembly rooms (Delamotte's Public Rooms). These two ranges, with No.15 (qv) and the remains of the Town

Pump, Cove Row (qv) adjoining form an important ensemble in a prominent harbour position. At the time of survey the N end is somewhat concealed by a C20 public convenience block. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 345).
