842-1/5/227 (West side)
19/03/73 Nos.13 AND 14
House or houses, now shops, restaurant, offices and flats.
Probably early C19, but with considerable additions of period
detail in 1920s or 1930s. Solid rendered walls. Slate roof.
Large rendered chimney with decorative red pots on centre of
front range. L-shaped plan with later buildings infilling the
angle of the L.
3 storeys; 4-window range with 4-window return to left. Ground
storey has 5 shop-fronts with C20 pulvinated friezes and
modillioned cornices; that to right of Quay front has been
altered, but that to left retains original glazing. Horizontal
channelling between the shop-fronts; continued sills in second
storey, extending round both fronts. Upper-storey windows
facing The Quay have moulded architraves, with the addition of
cornices on consoles in the second storey. A raised band links
the cornices of the 3 right-hand windows. Between the windows
at this level are hollowed-out circular panels; that to right
now contains a clock, while the other 2 have eccentric
'keystones' at the bottom. Corresponding to the outer of these
panels in the third storey are 2 small round-headed windows.
In the return front the right-hand second-storey window
matches those to The Quay, but with a segmental pediment.
There is no third-storey window above it; the other windows to
the left are plain.
Windows in both fronts have barred sashes; 6-over-6 panes in
the second storey, 3 over 6 panes above, except that in the
outer of the 3 left-hand windows of the return front the
proportions are 8 to 8 and 4 to 8. Both fronts are finished
with a prominent cornice and blocking-course. Above the corner
stands a high C20 pedestal surmounted by a green dome.
INTERIOR not inspected, but the 1st floor corner room noted as
having an enriched cornice. The building occupies a prominent
position on the waterfront.
