GV II

Remains of C15 hall adapted and partly rebuilt in C17/18, incorporated into inn (The Ewe and Lamb) by 1766 and probably used as warehousing from 1848. PLAN: The original building has stone walls and was at level of present cellar floor, the west wall has two four-centred and blocked openings, one square-headed opening also blocked, and inserted fireplace. In C17 or C18 a brick vaulted cellar inserted and floors and attic added. Stone walls largely rebuilt in brick, the south wall demolished and extended in C17/18. Exterior: East front largely red brick, steeply pitched tiled roof with gable ends. Two storeys with attic and cellar. Two C18 gabled dormers. Ground floor has various segmental arch-headed openings one with original moulded stone jamb. First floor has two casements with segmental brick arches and three-light window between the left first-floor door with loft door above through eaves with flat roof and hoist. INTERIOR: Heavy cross beams of C18, with tenoned joists. See PLAN for C15 features. HISTORICAL NOTE: it seems probable that the building formed part of the Ewe and Lamb public house; by 1779 the tenancy had passed to James Clarke, musician, who changed the name to the Horn and Trumpet, a name which has been retained, but attached to another building opposite (qv). The Corn Exchange (qv) was built on the site of the frontage of the public house in 1848, by which time this hall had become warehousing.
