Nos.2-16 (Even)


Row of 8 shops, now 6 shops and 2 offices. Early-mid C19, with
later alteration. Painted brick on painted stone plinth.
Overhanging pent roof of slate on shaped brackets, hipped and
curved on plan at right end; left end altered; 4 brick stacks.
Each shop consists of a single bay. 1-storey 8-bay range, with
round-arched passage doorway between Nos 10 & 12. Passage
doorway contains round-headed plank and batten door in raised
surround. Shop fronts consist of door to left of shop window
over brick riser. Original doors were plank and batten, and
are retained throughout, except in Nos 6 & 16. Original
windows were of 15 square panes and set back to accommodate
shutters, as in Nos 2, 6, 8, 12 & 14. A continuous louvred
ventilation grille runs across the heads of windows and doors;
most have been boarded over but open ones survive in Nos 2, 8,
10 & 12. Shop front to No.2 returns at right end, on Market
Place, with C20 cross window beneath louvred ventilation
grille. Overhanging roof forms continuous canopy over shop
fronts. INTERIOR: each shop originally had small plain
fireplace with shelf, against the rear wall. Together, Nos
1-15 (qv) and 2-16 The Shambles constitute an interesting
example of a planned thoroughfare, laid out to link the Market
Place with the newly opened Cattle Market. The shops are said
to have been butchers' shops.
