The Angel Inn is Andover’s oldest building and is a mid-15th Century timber-framed, purpose-built, two-storey inn with cellar, and much of this fabric survives although it has been modified over the centuries.
The original form of The Angel has been described in some detail by Roberts (1991) using both the C15 contract documents and also analysis of the surviving fabric. In essence the C15 building took the form of a rectangular courtyard-inn with the principal east range along the High Street frontage. The contract indicated that the High Street frontage of the Angel was to be 90ft (27m) and the depth 80ft (24.4m). The bays measure approximately 20ft (6m) deep and 10ft (3m) wide.
