Listing Text


639-1/15/704 (East side)
12/07/72 Nos.33 AND 34


House, divided into 2 during the C19. Late C15 or early C16,
with later extensions; mid-C19 front. Timber-framed and
rendered; tiled roof with bands of black fishscale tiles and a
ridge with ornamental crest tiles. No.33 is jettied along the
front with a small projecting section of slate roof above. The
original form was probably of a storied hall and a cross-wing.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attics; 4 sash windows to the 1st
storey and 3 to the ground storey, all in flush cased frames
with a single vertical glazing bar to lights. 2 entrance
doors: No.33 has a 4-panel door, semicircular fanlight with
radiating glazing bars and a plain architrave with a bracketed
flat roof above; No.34 has an early C20 half-glazed door with
a rectangular fanlight. C19 extensions at the rear, now
modernised. A dormer window in the rear slope of the roof.
INTERIOR: No.33 is in 3 bays and was probably originally
roofed at right-angles to the street. It has an exposed timber
ceiling to the front ground-storey room with a blocked
stair-trap, heavy unchamfered joists and a chamfered main
beam. Most of the studding has been removed, including the
partition wall which divided off the rear bay, but along the
front wall are the housings for a window with moulded
mullions. On the 1st storey the south wall of the rear bay has
the remains of a long shutter slide and several diamond
mullions. Attic above the rear only; roof not inspected.
No.34 has a heavy main beam in the front ground floor room
with a wide chamfer and unusually large stops. A very fine
fitted cupboard in one corner, and a door made from square
Jacobean panelling. A chimney-stack has been curiously
inserted at the rear of the room, with a flue which is partly
horizontal. On the upper storey, the rear wallplate indicates
a roof-raising, but the roof timbers are all covered.
