TL 7523 1/98 Nos 37 and 39
No 37 was probably a C15 timber-framed building but was completely altered
and refronted in 1753. A red brick front with a parapet and a modillioned
cornice has gault brick dressings, quoins and bands. 3 storeys and cellars.
7 window range overall (arranged 2:3:2), the centre part, of 3 window range,
breaks forward slightly under a modillioned pediment with a blocked circular
window in the tympanum. The windows are double-hung sashes with unusual glazing
bars in octagonal panes. The central window on the 1st storey has a brick
architrave and the central window on the 2nd storey has a semi-circular head
with gault brick keystone and impost blocks. Raised gault brick bands run
between the 1st and 2nd storeys. At the rear there is a long timber-framed
and plastered warehouse wing, probably C18. At the north end of the east
front there is a covered passageway with some exposed timber-framing (see
also No 33 qv) and original moulded ceiling beams. RCHM(40).
Nos 31, 33, 37, 39 form a group with No 40 on the east side.
