1862/7/174 HIGH STREET
24-FEB-87 (East side)


House with attached former malt house, later dairy, now shop. Mid-late C17, frag
ments of surviving timber framing may suggest late C16 origins; early mid C18
refronting to No 19; late C18 extension to malt house; C19 chimneys; Welsh slate
roof. Two-storey with attic house (No 19); T-plan single depth front range with
C19 rear projecting wing and modern single storey rear extension; 3 storey malt
house (no 19A) projects forwards towards road. West front; 3-window 12-pane sash
fenestration, all with keyed headed architraves except that over doorway to left
with recessed cavetto moulding. This is the original opening, the window head has been raised to match the sashes; 6-panel door with flat timber porch hood. Front gable to malt house has parapet with finial and pigeon holes with moulded perches in apex. Middle floor doorway with timber lintel and glazed door reached up in straight flight of concrete and stone steps; top floor window over with coloured glass. Indications in stonework of lower gable height, the top floor of the whole range is C19. South side of malt house is brick on stone plinth with stone quoins indicating much shorter original building detached from house; older part has 3-light casement to ground and 2-light to upper floors, both chamfered stone mullioned with hoods; 2-light to attic without hood. Addition to east has
segmental arched middle floor casement; possible earlier part to right having
mixed fenestration including middle floor 2-light with hood, modern window to
ground floor. North side: 2-light casements to ashlar wall of malt house, also
with indications of alterations as to south. Moulded parapet gables to ends of
house with chimneys having paired shafts and moulded caps; 2 single-light case-
ments with hoodmoulds to upper floor and attic, 2-light to ground floor at south
end all with recessed cavetto moulding. Modern casements with timber lintels to
rear wing, masonry being coursed rubble from early C19 rebuilding. Gothic inter-
secting glazing bars to ground floor window to east gable end, this has been
inserted in earlier opening. Interior: early C18 staircase with turned
balusters, moulded handrails and strings. Beams with pointed stepped stops. Malt house attic formerly had concrete floor. Interior generally very altered. Roof in part much repaired C17 principal rafter type. Light C19 roof on wing. A house of several builds and extremely difficult to interpret; principal character now C18 and C19.
