(North Side)
Nos 81 & 82
TL 1829 SW 1/82 13.4.51
TL 1828 NW 2/82


No 81, which may originally have been the Tylers' Guildhall, retains much
work of the C15: No 82 appears to be of the C17, though it may have been
joined to No 81 at an earlier date. No 81, which was considerably altered
in C19, is of 2 storeys beneath a hipped tile roof. The ground floor
had three three-light mullioned windows beneath four-centred arches, each
light headed with cinque-foil stonework. The Northern window is now blind,
with plaster infilling: the centre window now has sashed casements superimposed
between the stone mullions; a door has been cut into the lower half of
the Southern window. Upper floor plastered, with 2 C18 sashed windows.
The combined facade of Nos 81 and 82 is cross-gabled at West and East,
with a gabled dormer over the middle section.
No 82 plastered and pargetted. 2 storeys with upper floor oversailing.
2 casement windows. Carriageway on right shows the timber construction.

Nos 70 to 75 (consec), Nos 77,78 and Nos 81 to 84 (consec) form a group.
