LANCASTER

SD4761NE CHURCH STREET
1685-1/7/78 (South side)
09/07/74 Nos.57, 59 AND 61

GV II

Two houses, now an extension to the Royal Bank of Scotland, to
the left at No.2 New Street (qv). Late C18, altered C20.
Coursed dressed sandstone in long blocks with quoins and
ashlar dressings, with coursed rubble to the sides and rear.
Slate roof with large gable chimney stacks. Double-depth plan
with a rear wing to the right.
3 storeys, probably above cellars, and 2 very widely-spaced
bays with sill bands on the upper floors. The ground floor has
been altered by the insertion of a continuous shop front in
the form of a colonnade, with 6 fluted timber columns
irregularly spaced so as to make a doorway at the left end and
coupled doorways in the centre, all under a plain frieze with
a modillion cornice which breaks back slightly between the
single and coupled doorways, but with plate glass now
replacing the former wall and openings. All the windows on the
upper floors have raised plain surrounds and 12-pane sashes,
and the gable wall has a similar window on each floor. Just
above the right-hand end of the lower sill band is a small
diamond plaque with raised lettering: 'V 29'.
