Listing Text


1685-1/7/307 (East side)
Nos.31, 33 AND 35


Row of 3 houses, now offices. c1800, altered C20. Sandstone
ashlar, and slate roofs with coped southern gable. Nos 31 & 33
have double-depth plans with linked recessed doorways, up 3
steps, facing west. No.35 is only one room deep, with one bay
facing west, and has a gabled double-fronted facade facing
south with a central doorway. The chimney stacks are on the
north gable and on the party wall between Nos 33 & 35.
3 storeys above cellars in a plinth, and 3 bays facing west
under a plain eaves cornice; the first 2 bays belong to Nos 31
& 33, while the third lights the side of No.35. The south
pedimented gable has a round-headed attic window, above a band
which continues the line of the stone box gutter on the front.
All the openings have plain reveals.
The doorways to Nos 31 & 33 were re-modelled in 1988. They
have doors each of 6 raised panels and overlights, with
re-entrant corners, and a cornice carried on plain consoles,
as does the doorway to No.35. All the windows are sashed with
glazing bars to give 12 or 9 panes, except for the lower
sashes on the ground floor. However, the windows on the
right-hand gable are blind, blocked with stone slabs in 2
planes originally painted to look like 16-pane sashes.
HISTORY: on the 1845 OS map No.35 is marked as the Town
Clerk's Office.
