SS 5404
11/52 Nos. 21 and 23
Pair of houses including shop. C17 possibly incorporating some medieval fabric,
considerably altered and extended in C19 and C20. Rendered probably rubble walls.
Gable ended slate roof. Brick stack at right gable end. Projecting plastered
rubble stack at gable end of rear left-hand room. Large axial stack of small
dressed sandstone blocks with dripmoulds and moulded dripcourse below tapering cap.
Similar stack at gable end of rear parallel block behind right-hand end.
Plan: original plan now unclear but position of stacks suggest a 3-room and
through-passage plan with axial hall stack backing onto passage. Heated wing behind
left-hand end. Another small early block however survives at the rear parallel to
the front range at the right-hand end, heated by a gable end fireplace. A later
addition connects the 2 early ranges. It seems likely that these buildings
incorporate in their core some medieval fragments from the collegiate buildings
associated with the adjoining church (q.v.). Subsequent C19 and C20 additions and
alterations to room arrangement and virtually have eradicated any positive evidence
of this, although some may still be concealed.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of late C19 4-pane sashes on
first floor. On ground floor is C20 part-glazed door to left with C20 shop front to
its right. Projecting C20 shop front at centre C20 double glazed doors at right-
hand end under verandah-type porch. C19 infill behind this end connects front
range to small rear block whose gable end adjoins the Churchyard gates. This has
exposed sandstone rubble wall with 2 arched niches on ground floor and one on first
floor which has possibly medieval carved stone human mask and a C19 stone shield
below carved with the initials J.S.S.
Interior: no early features visible apart from 2 C17 trusses over front range with
cranked collars which have notched lap joint onto principals and trenched purlins.
Simpler C17 truss without collar to rear left-hand wing.
