Swan Hotel, Kingsclere

This building dates to 1448. The Swan Hotel, Kingsclere, stands parallel to Swan Street in a former market town. The surviving timber-framed structure comprises a fine two-bay hall with elements of a cross wing, which are both ascribed a felling date of 1448/9. The hall has two tiers of chamfered butt purlins, fully wind braced. The hall truss is of jointed-cruck construction with moulded inner faces and a worn, shield boss beneath the collar. The quality of construction and the large size of the hall (28 feet high, 27 feet wide and 19 feet long) suggest that it was part of a superior building. (Miles and Worthington 1997, VA 28, list 85)
