13/361 The Camden Arms (formerly listed as 20.10.54 The Camden Hotel) GV II

Public house and restaurant, formerly a hotel. C18 with C19 and C20 modernisations, most recently circa 1980. Ground floor is plastered brick, timber-framed above and hung with peg-tile; brick stacks and chimneyshafts with some old chimneypots; peg-tile roof.

Plan: Large double depth building facing north onto the Upper Green. Most of the ground floor layout has been lost as partitions have been removed to create large bar and restaurant spaces. It had 2 main front doorways separating the 3 front rooms. The right (east) doorway is now blocked. Left end room has end stack and centre room had a stack backing onto the left entrance hall. Rear rooms have similar stacks. Right front room has an end stack but the room to rear, which projects to rear has a rear stack. It was probably the kitchen.

2 storeys with various C19 and C20 service extensions to rear.

Exterior: Regular 5-window front including 3 canted bays. 2 full height but the right one is only single storey. Each bay has ground floor 16-pane sash windows flanked by 8-pane sashes and first floor 12-pane (4/8) sash windows with flanking 6-pane sashes. The other first floor windows are C19 casements with glazing bars and at ground floor level a C20 window blocks the right doorway. Old photographs show that this doorway was much like the surviving one to left, just a little smaller. Part-glazed panelled door behind a large Tuscan porch up 3 steps. Its moulded entablature includes a modillion cornice. Plain eaves and parallel roofs are hipped both end. Similar style continued round the other sides although some of it replaced in the C20.

Interior: Shows largely the results of C20 modernisations.

Roof not inspected.
