Public House. Mid C17 or earlier. MATERIALS: Rendered mass wall; thatched roof with plain ridge, hipped at left end of left wing, gabled at right end; half-hipped at ends of right-hand block; stacks with brick and rendered shafts. PLAN: The right-hand block is the principal range. This has a single-depth 3-room plan with a rear outshut, the 2 right-hand rooms heated by a right-end and axial stack, the left-hand end with a rear left lateral stack. The left-hand wing, perhaps originally a service or stable building, is now used as a bar and restaurant, is roofed on the same axis and partly overlaps the original at the front. It is heated by probably C20 stacks at the left-end and on the front. Flat-roofed C20 addition to rear. EXTERIOR: Main range 2 storeys; left wing single-storey. Asymmetrical 2:3-window front. Main block has a recessed part-glazed door to right of centre with small panes above a low panel. 3 ground- and 3 first-floor timber windows with C20 leaded panes. The wing has an entrance on the right return with a wide doorway, C20 timber door with 2-panel overlight. To its left, a large 2-light top-hung timber window. The front elevation of the wing has a large doorway to the right with shallow brick cheeks and a 2-leaf timber door with an overlight with glazing bars. Two 3-light windows to its left are glazed with pretty c1840s casements each light with a central vertical band of diamond panes with margin panes. INTERIOR: Partly inspected. The right-hand room of the main range has C17 well-carpentered chamfered scroll-stopped cross beams. Remains of bread oven associated with fireplace in centre room. Roof not inspected but may be of interest. One of a group of pre-C19 vernacular buildings in Preston.
