22.10.52 No.19 (Atrium Antiques),
(formerly listed as No.12
High Street )
House, with shop to ground floor. Circa 1725, encasing an earlier timber
framed structure, reworked 1820 for 6th Duke of Bedford by George Maddocks,
who designed new shop windows for the draper then occupying the building.
Red brick. Shallow pitched slate roof with deep eaves. 3 storeys, 2 rooms
deep. Symmetrical front elevation. First and second floors each have 3
early C19 windows, central out of narrower proportions. 2nd floor central
one is blind. All are sashes with glazing bars in plain reveals under gauged
brick flat-arched heads. 2nd floor windows are of more squat proportions
than first floor ones. Shop-front takes up whole of ground floor, and is
bowed (elliptical in plan). Central part-glazed double doors surmounted by
rectangular fanlight with ornamental radiating glazing bars. The broad
flanking windows have glazing bars of same proportions as doors, and are
surmounted by ornamental glazed frieze with motif's similar to fanlight. The
frieze and fanlight designs are said to incorporate symbols of the drapery
trade in the form of buttonhole and herringbone stitches. C18 brick string
course visible at either side of shop-front. S (side) elevation retains 2
C18 flush sashes with glazing bars, one each to first and 2nd floors. These
and the ground and first floor blind windows have gauged brick segmental
heads. Ground floor has early C19 canted bay. Red brick integral stacks to
N and S walls.
