No 8
TL 1998 NW 1/407
Dated 1911, and listed solely as a curiosity. 3 storeys, half-timbered. 3 gables
with finials contain 3 local coats of arms and pargetted plasterwork above 2 canted
bays of 6 lights, with wood transoms and mullions and rounded bays on the 1st floor
under pentice tile roofs. The main feature of the front is 5 brightly-painted
statues in niches. Athelwold, bishop of Winchester (over) Prince Rupert and
King Peada (over) the Earl of Essex flank a central statue of Henry VIII. To the
right an octagonal turret of 2 storeys with candle-snuffer roof. The ground
floor is entirely occupied by a modern shop front. As a visual group with the
Old Guild Hall this building has a certain curiosity value.
