Listing Text


683-1/8/192 (South side)
24/09/86 No.26


House, now shop. Probably C16, altered in the C17, especially
internally, and refronted in the early C19, with mid-to-late
C20 alterations. Timber-framed with facade plastered, probably
over brick; parapet hiding roof, probably of slate. 4 storeys;
2 window range: 1st floor windows blind, with glazing bar
sashes on the 2nd floor and smaller casements on the 3rd
floor; all windows in raised, moulded surrounds. Thin band
over later C20 glazed shop front.
INTERIOR: virtually complete timber-frame, though the floor
structure of the 1st floor was largely cut away at the time
that the supermarket was extended into the building, probably
during the 60's. At the same time the upper floors of the
building were abandoned and the rear staircase removed. 1st
floor retains, however, a C17 plaster ceiling, enriched, in
panels framed by downstanding girding beams.
