MEM22236 - The Ship Inn, Porlock Weir (Building)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
This comprises two buildings; the front one is probably 17th Century with a long low frontage, and large shouldered front projecting stack . It is whitewashed over stone with half-hipped thatched roof , and large shouldered front lateral stack with square-section shaft. To the rear and left, and of similar scale, but with less prominent stack is the second building, probably of 18th century date. This is roughcast with double-Roman tiled roof. Both have timber casement windows with rectangular-leaded panes. Immediately adjoining the latter is a group of mainly single-storey outbuildings, grouped around a forecourt with remnants of a former cobbled surface. Built of stone with brick dressings, some chamfered, and double-Roman tiled roofs, they are currently disused and showing signs of dilapidation. The Ship Inn includes two houses built in local vernacular style; that in the foreground predating that to the rear, to which 19th Century stables (on the left) were added.  The building shows on the late 19th Century Ordnance Survey map.  This structure appears to be present on the 1841 Porlock Tithe map.
