Listing Text

(south side)

6/120 Nos 85 and 87


House, now 2 shops. C16 - early C17 with C19 alterations. Timber-framed,
stone additions, Westmorland slate roof with 4 eaves courses of stone
slates. 1 storey with attic, 3 bays. No 85: C20 plate-glass door, shop
window and fascia. No 87: C19 surround to C20 door and plate-glass window.
Attic lit by small window under eaves (centre), probably an original
opening. Large 3-light C20 cross-window on right extends above eaves line.
Large brick stack on ridge between bays 2 and 3. Interior: both shops have
timber framework visible in attic. The gable ends, rear wall and 2 cross
walls survive probably intact. The roof structure compises large cambered
tie-beam trusses with queen posts and purlins. Details of ridge and rafters
obscured by plaster and boarding, but probably intact. Principal posts of
truss cut off approximately 90 centimetres below tie beam level to insert
shop window of no 85. The rear wall is close-studded, with probably
original infilling of wattle and daub surviving. It now forms an internal
wall, with an added aisle under a cat-slide roof at the rear.
