SX874510 SMITH STREET
673-1/8/222 (North side)
Two small houses, now united as a single house; the Smith
Street end one probably with a ground-floor shop originally.
Date uncertain, the Church Close end looks C16 or C17 and the
Smith Street end is probably C18 or earlier, both somewhat
disguised by C19 and C20 modernisations. Mixed construction;
stone rubble side walls, but plastered front and back walls
are mostly timber-framed; left end and rear lateral stacks
with painted brick chimneyshafts with pots; slate roof.
PLAN: The Smith Street front block has a former ground-floor
shop with a side passage on the left side; house above with
one-room plan. Rear block projects at right angles back to
Church Close, thought to have been a separate house formerly.
Narrow courtyard along left side of the rear block filled by
EXTERIOR: Front block is 3 storeys and lower rear block is 4
storeys. Plastered plain 2-window front to Smith Street is
superficially early C20; it is stone rubble at ground-floor
level and timber-framed above. Left side passage doorway down
a couple of steps contains a C20 part-glazed door and the
couple of low wide C20 windows to right are thought to have
replaced a former shop window. C20 casements above. Plain
eaves to parallel roof which is gable-ended and slate-hung to
right. The Church Close front is also plain, plastered and
contains C20 windows (including a pair of horned 4-pane
sashes) but the steep pitch of the gable suggests C16 or C17
(maybe earlier) structure.
INTERIOR: Not inspected but likely to be of interest.
