Details

NEW STREET 1 (West Side) 1483 ----------- 18.6.55. The Talbot Hotel, including ranges of stables and barns at rear. Mounting block near main carriage entrance. TL 0488 1/22

I GV

2. Established in 1552 on earlier site and rebuilt 1626. It is popularly believed that stone from Fotheringhay Castle was used in the rebuilding and that the fine C16 staircase was brought from there also. There are some good fireplaces and original C17 panelling, and much work in 'style' of a more recent date. The plan of the main building is roughly L shaped with modern extensions at the rear, and an extensive range of stables and barns reaching back to and along Drumming Well Lane. The New Street block is 2 storeys and attics in ashlar with very steep stone slate roofs with ball finials on the kneelers and apex of all gables including the 3 dormers on the front. Massive chimneys with 6 flues, 2 by 3, with entablature topping. All windows have stone mullions or mullions and transoms except the window over the archway in the main front. The main front is asymmetrical, there being 1 extra window to both main floors at the south end, 3-light to the ground floor and 6-light mullioned and transomed to the 1st floor. Band at eaves and above ground floor openings. Apart from the windows already noted, the rest of the openings are symmetrically disposed. Two 3 storey canted bays with 5-light window to the ground floor, 10-light mullioned and transomed window to the 1st floor with a raised lozenge below, above is a massive gabled dormer with a flush face (not canted) the full width of the bay with deep up-cut and curving shoulders, where it spreads beyond the width of the front face of the bay. The attic windows are 3-light with heavy label and there is a raised lozenge above and below. 3-light window to semi-basement in north bay. In the centre another dormer similar in detail to those above the bays rises flush with the main face; semi-circular headed window with architrave and archivolt to 1st floor, the architrave reaching down to the band above the ground floor; carriageway with a curved head through the ground floor. Lower 2 storey extension to the north end, roughly in style, appears to be a new face on an old restored wing. Also stone mounting block to left of centre carriage archway on main front elevation.

All the listed buildings in New Street form a group.
