Abstract:
As part of a planning application for the conversion of part of the Castle Hotel into residential properties and the rennovation of the remainder, Greenlane Archaeology carried out a programme of building recording. The Castle Hotel is formed by six conjoined buildings, two of which are Grade II Listed, and have seventeenth century origins. The entire range of buildings is situated in the centre of the planned medieval settlement at Hornby, opposite the castle and the church, and immediately adjacent to the location of the original market. There is evidence for an inn on the site from at least the late 16th century when it was occupied by Henry Chatburn, who was also a local linen merchant and deputy bailiff to the castle estate. Datestone evidence from with the building indicates that it was later owned by the Coulthurst family and that the original inn was named The Bull. There are few references to the property during the 18th century, but its proximity to the Turnpike constructed in the 1750s undoubtedly influenced it and led to further development. During the 19th century it was occupied by landlords who were also farmers, although it aquired the title 'inn' at this time, and it was not until the late 20th century that the various buildings were all joined together, although some have since been separated. The building recording revealed seven phases of development dating from the 17th century onwards, an including the construction of a large function room in the ealry 19th century. During the 20th century the main part of the hotel it was subject to a number of unsympathetic alterations, which damaged much of the original fabric, although the earliest surviving part of the structure had retained several original features including a turned timber staircase rail.
