SJ 66 NW STOCKTON HEATH VICTORIA SQUARE,

64-/3/10001 Mulberry Tree Hotel

II

Hotel with small adjoining shop, now internally integrated as public house. Main range 1907, by William and Segar Owen; altered internally. Small red stock bricks with blue diapering, the upper floors faced with applied small stones (perhaps in imitation of flints) with brick quoining and gable copings; with dressings of red sandstone and red terracotta (including window surrounds and mullions); hipped green slate roofs. Irregular L-plan on corner site, with splayed corner to left (London Road). Free neo-Jacobean style, with diapered brickwork, mullion-and-transom windows, steep gables with finials and tall chimneys. Two-and-a-half storeys, a 3-window facade to Victoria Square (including the played corner); with coved eaves broken by a broad attic gable over the centre, a smaller attic gable to the right, and by a stone Dutch gable to the splayed left corner. A wide loggia formed by a Jacobean-style open-work timber balcony supported on 2 white granite columns covers the centre of the ground floor, bridging a canted bay window in the centre and protecting one doorway to the left and coupled doorways to the right; to the left is a 1-light window with enriched terracotta lintel, and to the right a transomed 6-light window. The 1st floor has a large 14-light transomed window with a glazed balcony door, and a 3-light mullioned window to the right, and the gables above have 4- and 3-light windows respectively. The splayed corner is featured in sandstone, with a 6-light bow window at ground floor framed by panelled pilasters with carved consoles to a 1st-floor oriel which has a cross-window and Renaissance enrichment including a Dutch gable. Tall clustered and corniced brick chimneys (one in the centre and one on each side slope). The 5-window left return to London Road has (inter alia) a broad gable to the centre, a stone 2-storey canted bay window to the right-hand half of this, a matching canted bay to the left of it and tiered 2-light stairwindows between these. The FORMER SHOP attached to the right of the main range has a gabled Tudor-style timber-framed facade of 2 low storeys, with a simple doorway and shop-window at ground floor, a jettied upper floor with sturdy square-framing and a canted oriel which has honeycomb leaded glazing, a jettied timber-framed gable carried across this and supported by large moulded brackets at the corners, and oversailing eaves likewise on brackets. Interiors altered, but main range retains original hotel staircase. Forms group with Red Lion Hotel (q.v.) on opposite side of London Road, and with Police Station on east side of square (q.v.)
