673-1/8/221 (North side)
23/10/72 No.14


Two small houses, now united as a single house; the Smith
Street end one probably with a ground-floor shop originally.
Date uncertain, both the Church Close and the Smith Street
fronts suggest a C17 date, but both are somewhat disguised by
C19 and C20 modernisations. Mixed construction; stone rubble
side walls, but plastered front and back walls are mostly
timber-framed; left end and rear lateral stone rubble stacks
but chimneyshafts not visible; slate roof.
PLAN: Smith Street block of one-room plan; rear block back to
Church Close thought to have been a separate house with its
own shop originally.
EXTERIOR: Front block is 3 storeys and lower rear block is 4
storeys. One-window front to Smith Street. Jettied upper
floors indicate C17 structure behind. The older plaster on the
front is lightly blocked out as ashlar. Former shop window
rebuilt in the C20 with small panes and glazing bars.
Right-hand passage door down a step now contains a C20 fielded
6-panel door. First floor has a pair of 12-pane sashes, and
single example on second floor. Plain eaves to parallel roof
which is gable-ended to right.
The Church Close front is also plain, plastered and
superficially C19. Another shop front to the ground floor,
4-panel door and small pane window with glazing bars. 12-pane
sash windows to the upper floors, a row of 3 to the first
floor, a pair on the second floor and a single one to the
third floor. There are ovolo-moulded mullions between the
first-floor windows which may be C17.
INTERIOR: Only ground-floor level was available for inspection
at the time of survey. It was essentially the result of C20
modernisation and no earlier features exposed. Nevertheless
the structure, which is all hidden behind later plaster, is
probably C17 or even earlier.
