SP 02 28 WINCHCOMBE GLOUCESTER STREET (north side) 4/64 No 83 (Ye Old Corner 4.7.60 Cupboard) GV II* Farmhouse, now Inn. C16 with deep C19 malthouse attached. Squared and dressed limestone, stone slate roof, saddle-back coping to gable, left, large T-plan stone stack, raised in brick, off-centre on ridge, right, but to left of entrance. A broad-fronted building with two prominent buttresses with offsets to main elevation, and weathered plinth, buttresses not part of ori- ginal structure but added soon; also on return gable, left, two large but- tresses with 3 offsets, also added to original structure; extending along Malthouse Lane long wing formerly the Malt House to this Inn. Main block is two storeys, attic and part basement, 3-windowed: 2-light Cl9 casement gabled dormers, three 3-light ovolo-mould stone mullioned casements under stopped drips at first floor plus smaller 2-light, the same, at lower level, over main entrance; at ground floor, two 4-light each with king mullion and, to right of door, one 7-light in 3,2,2 casements with two king mullions, all with ovolo-mould mullions and stopped drips, and in plinth under window 2, opening with moulded surround and grille, approached by steps down to base- ment. Off-centre, right, adjacent to buttress, plank door in flat pointed stone head with plain spandrels, approached by 4 stone steps in a quadrant. In gable, left, 2-light over 3-light ovolo-mould mullioned casements, as main front, but no window at ground floor, and in Malt House, two storeys, plus attic, various C19 windows in four bays. Interior includes various fragments built into outer gable wall, probably from Winchcombe Abbey, inclu- ding several sections of double-roll rib section; various broad chamfered beams, and two fireplaces opposite lobby entrance, that to right with large 4-centred chamfered and moulded opening, and similar but simpler, left of door. Over the 7-light window deep wood bressummer with intermediate deep wood 'fin' support at first king mullion. Two C17 corner cupboards remain in bar. At connection between C16 and C19 parts is fine segmental-headed 6-panel fielded door. The relatively recent name derives from the interior fittings; the building became an Inn only in 1872.
