Listing Text


610-1/7/90 (West side)
01/12/51 Nos.23 AND 25


House, later houses and tenements, now offices. Early C17
reconstruction on an existing plot. Mid C18 facade.
Brick. Plain tiled roof.
Plan is of a front range with a central passage to rear,
opening into a very narrow yard which separates 2 parallel
ranges running west, a form which invites a split into 2
independent properties. Converted 1989-91 to offices.
Masculine facade of 3 storeys in 5 bays with rusticated stone
quoins and stone surrounds to the late C18 sashes with glazing
bars. Central fielded and panelled door. Door surround of big
rusticated blocks with an arch over the fanlight and a metope
frieze beneath the hood. Parapet hides roof. One stack right
and left. South gable wall rebuilt in yellow commons after
collapsing c1900.
C20 South rear wing in C17 brick runs down Ferry Lane: one
3-light C17 mullioned casement to ground floor; occasional C18
sashes with glazing bars.
Rear wings of 2 storeys terminating in very rare, for Lynn,
stepped gables. North wing is wider, accommodating two 1989
sashes to each floor and another in the gable. South wing only
has one sash to each principal floor. Late C18 sashes here and
there to courtyard elevations. 3 gabled dormers to north wing,
on south roof slope. One ridge stack to each wing, that to the
south of C17.
INTERIOR. One ovolo-moulded 2-light timber casement survives
to first floor of south rear wing. Rear ground-floor west room
to north range with a sunk quadrant bridging beam. Occasional
deeply moulded internal door surrounds. Roof of north wing has
upper clasped purlins and cambered collars, the south wing
roof is much altered. Front range appears to have a standard
principal, common and purlin roof.
