8/82 Antrim House and The Old
- Counting House Restaurant
(formerly listed as
9/12/55 Antrim House and The


Two houses, one with restaurant attached. Built in 3 stages: to right is a 3-
bay C14 building. At centre is a 2-cell mid C16 section and to left a lower
C17/C18 addition. 2 storeys throughout. Timber-framed and plastered (Antrim
House is roughcast). Plaintiled roofs; an axial C19 chimney of red brick.
The Old Counting House has a pair of C19 splayed bay shop windows under a
continuous flat roof, and with a C19 doorway between them (late C20 framed and
battened door). At 1st storey are 3 early C19 windows with small-pane cast
iron casements. Antrim House and the left hand part of the Old Counting House
have mid C20 windows, the latter with leaded glazing; each has a C20 framed
and boarded door. The C14 structure is of unusual form for its date: the
upper floor was jettied along the frontage and each bay was partitioned (at
ground storey) from the next. In addition the two right-hand bays were
partitioned down the centre, and possibly also the third. The resulting 6
small rooms indicate a non-domestic use, possibly shop units (the building
faced onto the market place in C14). Very plain framing, with widely-spaced
studding, arch-wind-braced. A splayed scarf joint with undersquinted butts in
the rear wall plate. Rafters reused from an orignal roof probably of coupled-
rafter form. Unchamfered square floor joists. The C16 section was also long-
wall jettied; a bracket wwith shaft beneath (now inside the building). Heavy
framing with close-studding, unchamfered floor joists and good undecorated
crownpost roof.
