FRIARGATE (South West side),
No.47 and attached buildings in rear courtyard

(Formerly listed as No.47 Barronfield Gallery and attached buildings in rear courtyard)

House, now shop, with attached former dwellings in rear
courtyard. Front range dated 1755 on rainwater head (but
rebuilt), courtyard buildings early C19, altered (and now
derelict). Front of modern common brick in stretcher bond,
with sandstone dressings, slate roof; rear of red brick in
English garden wall bond (4+1), mostly painted, with slate
roofs. Double-depth front range, with narrow passage and
courtyard to right, rear wing, range bridging passage,
and pair of single-depth cottages along south side of
courtyard. All 2 storeys, the rear cottages very low. At the
front are a C19 shop-front surround, and the rainwater head,
which has a moulded base and cornice, and a waisted hopper
with raised lettering "IHM /1755". The long narrow
through-passage beside the rear wing, continued as a tunnel
under the rear range, is a rare survival of early C19 cellular
development which formerly predominated in the main streets of
the town, and the cottages, the only example known to have
survived, are of one-up-one-down type, with a segmental-headed
doorway to the right, a square segmental-headed window to the
left and a small square window above; that to the right has
very small partly-sunk kitchen-living room at ground floor.
Included as good example of early C19 housing.
