9/57 No. 22 (formerly
31.10.66 listed as No. 22
(Brays House) and


House, shop and abattoir, now house. C18, altered in early C19, incorporating a
C17 fragment. Timber framed and plastered, with facade of red brick in Flemish
bond, roofed with slate and handmade red plain tiles. House facing NW, with
stack in left wall; shop to right, with wing to rear of it, with stack in right
wall; one bay of a C17 building beyond. C19 abattoir beyond, at right angles to
wing, with C20 link. The right side is bounded by Swan Yard, with rear access
from it. C20 single-storey lean-to extension to rear of house, with slate roof.
2 storeys. Ground floor, one early C19 sash of 16 lights with flat arch of
gauged brick and some crown glass. Traditional butcher's shopfront of 2 windows
of 35 lights, the upper parts openable, with blocked central door; above the
door a row of turned balusters and a pierced panel with St. Andrew's cross
pattern; reeded pilasters and architrave with paterae. First floor, 2 sashes
similar to that on the ground floor, and early C19 sash over main door with
semi-circular arch of gauged brick, Gothick tracery and crown glass. Early C19
6-panel door, the bottom panels flush, the others moulded, in doorcase with
plain overlight, panelled jambs and soffit; the formerly reeded pilasters have
been replaced by plain planks, retaining a fragment of reeded architrave and
paterae above. Plain band above first-floor windows, plain parapet. The
brickwork was re-pointed in 1985, and repaired above the shopfront and main
door. 2 roofs of shallow pitch, gabled to the rear. The brick facade extends
along the right return of the shop only, with 2 C20 windows in original
apertures with semi-circular arches of gauged brick. The abattoir is partly of
painted brick, partly timber framed and weatherboarded, with a half-hipped roof
of tiles. The entrance hall to left of the shop has an early C19 straight stair
with turned newels, moulded handrail, stick balusters and scrolled tread-ends.
The room to the right has an C18 wood-burning hearth with an alcove each side
with semi-elliptical head and panelled cupboards. Similar hearth behind shop.
The butcher's shop has a transverse plain beam supported at the right end by a
bolted cast iron bracket, probably original. In the rear wall of the shop is a
borrowed light of 20 panes, with crown glass; it is original to this position
but is reported to have been removed and stored for c.15 years, replaced in
1985; the panes are horizontal. Mixed hardwood and softwood framing with
primary straight bracing. The framing of the rear bay is of hardwood, fully
jointed and pegged, with primary straight bracing; deeply chamfered axial beam,
re-used tiebeam at rear. A photograph of c.1900 in the possession of the owner
shows the butcher's shop as Brownings, with a coved lead canopy, a gas lamp
bracketed to the corner, and the doorcase fully reeded; side windows blocked.
