TL 8619-8719 (north-west side)

8/194 Nos. 219 and 221


House, now divided into 2 houses. C16, altered in C19 and C20. Timber framed,
plastered and weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Main range
facing SE, c.1570, comprising 2 bays of a range which formerly extended for
another bay to the right, with C19 external stack to rear of right bay. 3-bay
crosswing to left extending to front and rear, early to mid C16, jettied to the
street. C19 stacks to right of front bay, on axis to rear of middle bay, and to
rear of rear bay. C18/19 lean-to extensions of one storey with attics to right
of crosswing in front of main range and to rear of it. Large C20 flat-roofed
single-storey extension to rear of main range. No. 219 comprises the crosswing,
the lean-to extensions, and a little of the main range; no. 221 comprises the
rest of the main range and flat-roofed extension. 2 storeys. Ground floor,
splayed bay of C20 casements below jetty, and one C20 casement. First floor, 3
C20 casements. C20 door in main range (no. 22i). The right return is
weatherboarded, with no apertures. The left return has a 4-window range of
early C20 casements, and a C20 door (no. 219) at the front of an early C20
gabled porch with scalloped bargeboards. No. 221 is wholly plastered and
modernised internally, except one arched brace in the front left corner; clasped
purlin roof with arched wind-bracing; the right gable is blocked with flettons
inside the weatherboarding. In no. 219 much of the framing is exposed,
revealing a clear gap between the main range and crosswing. The crosswing has a
blocked doorway with 4-centred head at the right end of the front wall, and a
rebate for shutters in the jetty plate, probably for an unglazed window on the
site of the present splayed bay. Chamfered binding beams with step stops. In
the front bay, chamfered joists of horizontal section with modified step stops
(cut back at the corners). In the rear bay, plain joists of horizontal section
with a blocked stair trap at the right side. Jowled posts. Cambered tiebeam
between front and middle bays, with one of 2 arched braces in situ. Some
exposed original wattle and daub infill in upper left wall. Groove for sliding
shutter in rear tiebeam. Curved tension bracing outside studs of right wall.
Crownpost roof. The middle bay of the roof survives intact, with plain
crownpost and axial bracing. The front bay has been raised. Victorian cast
iron grate in middle first-floor hearth. C18/early C19 battened internal doors.
A window of early glazed type is exposed internally, in the front of the main
range but now within no. 219, with 2 hollow-moulded mullions and 2 of the
original 3 saddle bars, a feature which merits special care. RCHM 28.
