1685-1/3/277 (South West side)
18/02/70 Warehouse on corner of Elm Street


Warehouse, now flats. c1760 converted c1986. Built in
conjunction with the neighbouring house, No.25 (qv). Coursed
roughly squared sandstone with ashlar dressings to the front,
and rendered rubble to side and rear. Slate roof with its
coped gable to the road. Approx 15m deep on plan behind a
facade which is approx 6m wide.
3 storeys above a cellar with raised quoins on the right and a
central loading slot which has a plain surround, as do all the
windows, and is flanked by a single-pane window on each floor
(originally these were masonry panels with a ventilation
slit). The loading slot now has a balcony on each floor. There
is no opening in the right half of the top floor, doubtless to
strengthen the wall by the crane, which survives in its
original wooden form. Below the right window a post box let
into the wall. The side wall is now rendered and is pierced by
a recent door and by windows on 3 storeys.
INTERIOR: when examined in 1985, prior to conversion into
flats, the original construction was visible, with softwood
beams measuring 340mm by 200mm spanning across the building
from corbels at 5 centres and 2 beams spanning back to front
in a rear room. Some of these beams on the ground floor bore
(apparently genuine) inscriptions: 'IA Apr 3 1760' and 'Isaac
Dixon 1773' written with (?) candle blacking, and 'TB 1778'
HISTORY: built on plot 35.
