GV II

House, part of row, but probably main wing of original great
house. Late C16 or early C17, restored 1991. Large squared
coursed block, slate roof. A broad gabled front to street,
brought forward from adjoining No 70 (qv), and with extesnions
to left and to rear; one room to each level. Two storeys and
attic, 1-windowed. Renewed 2 above 3 above 3-light chamfered
stone-mullioned windows with stopped drips over, carefully
replicated iron casement fittings. To right, down 2 steps, a
C20 plank door to 4-centred arch with hollow-chamfer surround.
Raised coped verge to cross saddle, and with moulded kneelers;
right return has a similar C17 2-light window at first floor.
Rear gable wall continues above roof as part of No 82 (qv). To
left is a further broad cross gable with large stone stack
raised in brick. Interior retains at ground floor a wide
4-centred C16 stone fire surround, cracked at centre, with
stone spiral stair to right, and a deep recess to left,
formerly a bread oven, but now opened up to a doorway to south
side. At first floor a further late C16 4-centred stone
fireplace, with moulded jambs to stops, and two large
transverse beams with ovolo mould and stops. Roof principals
have trenches for former purlins. With Nos 68 (demolished),
70, 80 and 82 (qqv) this building formed a larger
free-standing house when originally built, but has now become
a series of small units, probably in the C19. Until recently
in poor condition, the property has been restored with care,
employing surviving historical features where possible.
