TM5593NW HIGH STREET 914-1/8/15 (East side) 13/12/49 No.27 Royal Falcon Inn


Hotel and Public House. Mid C16, altered, especially in C20. Tarred knapped flint with roof of black-glazed pantiles. 2 storeys and dormer attic. 6 window range of 2/2 late C19 horned sashes. The ground floor formerly had similar windows and a doorway in the fourth bay (from left) under a pediment on scrolled consoles. This door remains but not the doorcase and the north window has been replaced by a late C20 recessed entrance. Overhanging eaves below the gabled roof. Four C20 flat-topped dormers with 3/3 sashes replace a pair of C19 dormers. Ridge stack set left of centre. The rear (east) elevation has a 2-storey extension to the south, C20 fenestration of mixed type, a dentil eaves cornice and red pantiles to the roof. The extension lies in the angle formed by a crosswing of 2 storeys and dormer attic under a hipped roof: C20 fenestration. INTERIOR. The ground floor has, to the north end, multiple roll-moulded bridging beams and wall plates between which run joists with rolled edges and stylised vine trail relief carving, all mid C16 and of high quality. A bressumer over the C20 south fireplace bears the date 1551, which is probably accurate. The first floor has sunk-quadrant bridging beams and wall plates with tongue stops, and the north-east room has in addition a timber carved cornice of simplified guilloche decoration. This room has C20 sub-divisions. The main roof is mid C18: chamfered principals, chamfered cambered collars, taper tenoned lower butt purlins and continuous upper purlins. The cross wing roof is also C18: two tiers taper-tenoned butt purlins and collars.
