Listing Text


859-1/6/246 (East side)
27/07/73 Nos.117 AND 118


House in row, with shop. Early C16 or before, rear range later
C16 or C17. Timber-frame with tension bracing to ground floor,
tile roof, brick stacks.
PLAN: Long front parallel-plan range, parallel to street, with
lower cross wing to front right; the property has very low
ceiling heights, and may have been a hall-house with solar
cross-wing. There is also a parallel range to the rear, with a
gabled projecting wing to its right (rear left).
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, formerly with attic. The set-back range
has a series of 13 small square lights, in groups, (between
framing members, which are not exposed), above a projecting
C19 three-bay shop front, with slender cast-iron colonnettes
carrying a fascia with moulded cornice, partly concealed by
later flat-arched aprons; the glazed door is set back to the
The gable has braced large-panel framing, with a blocked
2-light window in the gable, above a C19 three-light casement
with horizontal bar, and a C20 shop front with door to the
right; this door formerly gave to a throughway, now
incorporated within the opened-up ground floor. A brick stack
to left has been raised with a diagonally set shaft, and a
further small stack rises from the right gable end, having
been raised when the adjoining No.119 (qv) was built. There
are some scalloped ridge tiles.
The back has a section in large-panel framing to the
left,including a large 3-light casement at the eaves, and a
gable with braced framing, right, with a later brick wing
attached. A glazed conservatory section extends round 2 sides
of the wing.
INTERIOR: the upper levels were not accessible, but the roof
should give useful information about the original format of
the building. The ground floor is opened through, but retains
most of the heavy framing, with posts, beams, and rafters, and
part of one cruck-like member. Various props have been
inserted, using old timbers, where walls and partitions have
been removed, and the rear wall of the early building has been
taken out for most of its width.
This building needs further investigation to establish its
historical growth.
