Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

Site of 15th century house; much altered and incorporated into modern hotel complex, now demolished.

Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Part of 15th century fireplace survived – albeit with the fireback broken through to create a doorway into the next room, and the lintel and jambs much later replacements.

Remarkable corbels of Caen stone ornamented with three scallops or curves circa 14-15th century.

Local tradition that the site was historically a court house, but no historical record to support this.

Building was demolished in 2017; the fireplace corbels retained by the developer.
