Listing Text


673-1/8/216 (North side)


Small shop, now a cafeteria, with house above. Probably C17
with some later modernisation. Mixed construction; stone
rubble side walls with roughcast timber-framed front; stone
rubble stack in left side wall with C19 rendered brick
chimneyshaft; pantile roof, replacing slate.
PLAN: Small house, end onto the street, originally one or 2
rooms deep.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys; one-window front, remodelled in mid C19.
Ground floor has plain C19 timber shop front, having window
with glazing bars, doorway to right containing C20 glazed
door, end pilasters to fascia. Roughcast above with single
central horned 4-pane sash window with horizontal glazing bars
to each floor. Plain eaves and hipped front end of the roof.
INTERIOR: Only the ground floor was inspected. The scantling
of the chamfered crossbeam and the joists indicates their C17
date. Other C17 features, some probably hidden by later
plaster, probably survive on the upper floors.
An interesting survival of a very small C17 house, more on the
scale of a shopkeeper rather than a merchant. When built, it
was in a prime trading position at the junction of Higher
Street and Smith Street.
