SE 45 SW GREAT RIBSTON WALSHFORD WITH WALSHFORD 6/26 The Bridge Inn (Previously listed 15.3.66 as Bridge Hotel)


Former farmhouse and out-buildings, now a public house and restaurant. Rendered on north (road) side, C20 brick on south. C20 slate and pantile roofs. 3 ranges of buildings lie parallel to the road and comprise (north to south): former farmhouse and outbuilding, now bars and offices, former stables, now dining room, and former barn, now offices and storeroom. The ranges are linked by false walls and C20 extensions. 2 storeys, each range approximately 5 bays long. South facade: left range has C20 sash windows in late C18 ashlar architraves with triangular pediments. Central range has C20 round-headed windows with circular windows over. Right range has 20-pane sash windows in late C18 ashlar architraves, pulvinated frieze and broken segmental pediment. Interior: central range (dining room) contains elaborate C18 Rococo plasterwork and woodwork: panels between windows with garlands of flowers and grapes and masks with scallop shells; architraves decorated with gadrooning; elaborate fireplace and overmantle to west end in the same style. The ceiling has cherubs, busts and musical instruments in elaborate festoons and garlands. A room on the south side of the dining room contains fine fluted Corinthian column and ½ columns, Ionic columns flanking doorway, and a fireplace with carved fruit and flowers and consoles supporting corniced and gadrooned mantle shelf. Lounge-bar in range to right contains late C17 panelling composed of large fielded panels in moulded surrounds. C20 ranges at right angles to south of this group not of special interest. The interior fittings, and probably the external architraves also, were removed from Halnaby Hall, Croft near Darlington, c1950. Halnaby Hall was built c1728 for the Milbanke family and has associations with Lord Byron. Drawings and photographs of the early C20 show the features now preserved in the Bridge Inn.
