Visited with a mate one night last week, bit of a rushed visit. Photos not great as my main touch ran out as soon as got there and left the spare batteries at home, so using my back up light and most photos took one handed so little blurry but wanted to share anyway. Will prob do a revisit as 2 mins from my flat. Couldn't find much info on it but this is little bit I did find - Public house. Dated on rainwater head, 1904. Brick with stone dressings, rendering and half timbering, combined for maximum picturesque effect. Plain tile roof. Hearty blend of late medieval and Baroque features in a typically exhuberant Edwardian fashion. Three storeys and attics with two-storey wing to Deanery Way. Corner entrance and four-bay elevation, two-window return. Semicircular entrance porch surmounted by tower. Full-height pilasters marking the angles of the two elevations. Half-timbered tower above the entrance with bands of mullioned and transomed windows in two storeys, and rendered upper storey with oculus in cartouche; projecting domed cap. Elevation to main road comprises three gables, that to the right having decorative framing and overshadowing the pair to the left. Paired segmental-arched windows to ground floor with heavy voussoirs divided by corbel carrying upper oriel window. Other windows on first and second floors are mullioned lights with small pane sashes of original design. Jettied upper storeys are timbered with close studding and quatrefoil panelling in apex of gable. Stone dressings to windows in brick storeys, timber mullions above. Return to Deanery Way comprises two gables divided by a chimney breast. Each gable has segmental-arched window with stone voussoirs in brick lower storey, and mullioned sash windows in rendered upper storeys. Half-timbered jettied attic gables with mullioned windows in upper storeys. Stone pilaster at one side supports jettying of left hand gable.

Hello! VoilÃ je me dÃ©cide enfin Ã publier cette petite explo qui date de fin dÃ©cembre. Et maintenant Ã§a va Ãªtre un peu dur d'aller faire de l'explo car je me retrouve actuellement en bÃ©quilles... Bref mais si vous passez par la Touraine je peux quand mÃªme aller boire un verre avec vous si le cÅ“ur vous en dit. AprÃ¨s avoir hÃ©siter plusieurs fois Ã rentrer dedans par rapport aux diffÃ©rents affichages on dÃ©cide d'y rentrer malgrÃ© tout, ce fÃ»t une bonne chose et une belle dÃ©couverte. Dommage qu'il ait eu beaucoup de changement depuis les premiÃ¨res photos que j'avais pu voir... Pourquoi l'hÃ´pital du lion volÃ©? Dans la grande cage d'escalier se trouvait un lion sur le dÃ©but de celle ci qui fÃ»t surement arrachÃ©... Bien dommage car je me rÃ©jouissais de le voir enfin. Je vous laisse dÃ©couvrir ce lieu en photos: GOOGLE TRANSLATE: Hello That I finally decided to publish this little explo dating from late December. And now it will be a little hard to go to explo because I now find myself on crutches ... short but if you go through Touraine I can still go for a drink with you if your heart tells you . After hesitating several times to get into it with respect to different views we decide to go there anyway, it was a good thing and a great discovery. Too bad it has been much change since the first pictures I had seen ... Why the hospital stolen lion? In the great staircase was a lion in the beginning of this one which was probably ripped ... Well shame because I was looking forward to finally see. I let you discover this place in pictures:
