635-1/74/808 (North West side)
20/03/90 Nos.47 AND 48
Terraced houses with shops, now offices. C16 cellars; no 47 of
probably early C18 date and no 48 of late C18. Brick set in
Flemish bond, roof of slate. No 47 of three storeys, no 48 of
four, no 47 of three-window range, no 48 of two. No 47 has
late C19 shop front with dentil cornice and fascia stops to
ground floor; upper windows segmental-arched with sashes of
original design; stuccoed panel to parapet; right-hand return
of four-window range with similar fenestration and C20
shutters set within late C19 architraves with dentil cornice.
No 48 has early C20 shop front with glazing bars and panelled
door with overlight to ground floor; upper windows flat-arched
with heads of gauged red brick with sashes of original design
to first floor (6/6) and second floor (8/8); parapet much
rebuilt; stacks to party walls.
INTERIOR. Three rows of mid-C16 brick-built and
segmental-vaulted cellars beneath both houses, with Kentish
ragstone to foundations, traces of extensive tile floor and
two original connecting doorways, one with a four-centred
arched head of chamfered stone voussoirs. No 47 reported as
having panelling and original roof. The houses are situated
north of the former priory church of St John of Jerusalem, and
probably associated with one of the post-Dissolution (1540)
(Victoria County History: Middlesex, vol.1: PP.193-200).
