NORTH TAWTON FORE STREET, North Tawton SS 60 SE 6/110 Copper Key Inn (formerly listed as the Globe Inn) GV II Inn originally probably farmhouse. C17 possibly with earlier origins, C18 addition and C20 alterations. Rendered cob walls. Thatched roof, gabled to left end, hipped to front of wing. Brick axial stack offset from ridge of left-hand range. Plan: originally likely to have had 3-room and through passage plan with hall stack backing onto passage - which it is possible may have been inserted into an open hall judging from the way it is offset from the ridge. Wing added at front of right-hand end probably in C18. Original partitions removed in C20 - possibly when the building was converted to an inn. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical L-shaped front with 3 windows to each range of mainly C20 2 and 3-light casements, some with leaded panes. Single light C20 window to left on ground floor with no glazing bars. To its right is C20 glazed door with tall small-paned C20 window beyond it. Wing projects to right with late C19 4-pane sash window at its higher end on first floor. Below it is C20 glazed door under leanto doorhood with another part-glazed door to right of centre. Interior: one C17 chamfered ceiling beam visible on ground floor, other early features may be concealed by later modernisation and it is possible that early roof timbers survive.
