Listing Text


1939-1/7/62 (South side)
Nos.54, 55 AND 56
and approx 20 metres of wall east
and south into North Street


Three cottages and wall. Late C18/early C19. Rough ashlar
facade, and brick to the rear of Nos 55 and 56; slate roof
with stepped stone copings and brick stacks to gable ends of
Nos 55 and 56. No.54, to the right (west) was probably an
ancillary building; it is rubblestone, with one 3-light
casement under the eaves, and an entrance in the right return.
Double-depth plans.
No.55, to centre, is one-window range with a door to the left
and C19 three-light casements with small panes to each floor.
No.56, to the right (east), is 2-window range with C20
two-light casements to the first floor and left of the central
door; to the right of it are double planked doors not wide
enough for a carriage.
INTERIORS not inspected. The cottages back onto the garden of
St Mary's Hall, in North Street; one wall, attached to the
front-left corner, approx 5m high, encloses the garden. The
wall is Flemish-bond brick with burnt headers with rubblestone
above and Ham Hill stone coping. In the centre of it, in the
High Street range is a segmental arch to a large C19 door with
strap hinges and a lower door to its left with a concrete
lintel; these are rear access to houses in Court Barton. The
wall curves to the north-east, into North Street for approx
40m, to an arch over a gate to St Mary's Hall. Another
Flemish-bond brick wall is attached to the rear-left corner
and runs southward to meet the north-east corner of Abbot's
Court (qv).
