07/08/52 No.5
Scandinavia House
(Formerly Listed as:
(North side)
Nos.30 AND 30A)
(Formerly Listed as:
(West side)


Shop with offices above; formerly shop and house. Early C17
with mainly C20 exterior in Georgian style. Timber-framed and
rendered; plaintile roof.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attic and cellar. The main range has
4 small-paned sash windows in cased frames to the upper storey
and 2 flat-headed dormers with lead cheeks. The slightly
projecting gable facing Abbeygate Street has C19 shaped
bargeboards, one small-paned sash window to the upper storey
and an attic window. A wing extending up Abbeygate Street has
2 similar sash windows to the upper storey and 2 dormers. This
was formerly a separate property, No.30 Abbeygate Street, of 3
storeys and attics. Its present form is the result of
extensive alterations in the late 1960s, when the ground
storey of both ranges had shop fronts in Regency style
INTERIOR: nothing is visible in the former No.30 Abbeygate
Street. The range facing Angel Hill is in 5 bays, with all
partitions removed on the ground storey. On the upper storey
the bay at the south end has the framing exposed: widely
spaced studs with short straight tension braces to the gable
end; jowled main posts; a main beam with a small chamfer and
scroll stops is probably a replacement. A scarf joint in the
wallplate with a very short splay. Roof structure hidden.
