Public house. c1934, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, some internal modernisation c1983. Plastered walls on tall Flemish bond red brick footings; red brick stacks with tall chimneyshafts; thatched roof. PLAN: Building faces north-east and backs onto the ground of Cockington Park. Main block is double-depth with stack in axial partition. Not quite symmetrical crosswings project forward with massive projecting stacks on outer sides. South-east stair block originally intended as a link to a wing which was never built. Vernacular Revival style. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with single-storey crosswings. Building on tall plinth and approached by a flight of steps. Main block has 2 front doorways, one each end, both with flat timber hoods on open scrolled brackets and containing glazed doors. Between them a large canted bay containing a series of horizontal sliding sashes, more over the doors and on all sides of crosswing and stair block; both 12- and 16-pane. Hipped roof. Tall roof to main block with deep eaves to accommodate bay. INTERIOR: The public parts are largely the result of c1983 "rustication" but large fireplaces with chamfered and scroll-stopped lintels are original. The Drum and its garden features were the only parts built of a Lutyens scheme to create a model village in Cockington. It is an important building in an exceptionally attractive group of listed buildings in an unspoilt village and the adjoining Cockington Park.
