3/60 The Blue Boar Public House

II

Public house. C15 and later. Timber-framed; widened and encased in C19 red brick; pantiles. 2 storeys; 5 bays. 2 internal chimney-stacks with plain red brick shafts. 4 irregularly-spaced late C19 sash windows with reveals and multiple glazing-bars to upper floor; 2 similar windows to the left of the ground floor; the 2 remaining ground-floor windows are C20 replacements. 2 entrance doors, one to a centrally placed late C19 enclosed brick porch, single-storey, with shallow-pitched roof. Both doors with 6 flush panels, the top 2 glazed. C19 extensions to both ends of the front. The 2 bays to the left of the main stack have a smoke-blackened crown-post roof, formerly over an open hall. The crown-post of the open truss has a long octagonal shaft with unusual fluting continued round the cap and base; the wide arched braces to the collar and collar-purlin have a hollow-chamfer moulding. The end truss of the hall, which may also be the end of the original building, has a plain shaft to the crown-post, arched downward-sloping braces from crown-post to tie-beam, and the remains of widely-spaced studding. The front slope of the roof was raised when the brick front was added; there were inserted dormers in the rear slope before the back was extended. The main chimney-stack appears to have been inserted into the cross-entry in conjunction with a late C16 enlargement of the original service end. The inserted hall ceiling is plain, with joists set flat: one supporting beam is reused from the service-end partition and has grooves and mortices for planking and doorways. The bay at the left end is a C17 addition of poorer quality.
