Listing Text

BURFORD AND UPTON HIGH STREET
AND SIGNET (West Side)
SP2512 (Enlargement) No 80 (Anthony Nielsen
7/135 Antiques) (Previously
12.9.55 listed as "House and
Shop premises adjoining
Mermaid Inn on the south)

GV II


House with shop. C18 front to C15 or C16 house and show-room, restored
C20. Rubble with Cotswold stone roof. L-plan with skew front. 2 storeys
with parapet; large chimney to left. 2 windows, glazing-bar sashes with
timber lintels on 1st floor. 2 wide shallow C20 bows on ground floor to
shop front flanking entrance. The plan seems to consist of skew unheated
shop/show-room premises in front with high deep chamfered beams to
ceiling; pointed archway to rear alley; door and window in spine wall
(altered) with steps up. Rear room with partitions removed, fine cross
beam (moulded) ceiling and fine wide c.1500 flat headed moulded fireplace
under high relieving arch and with tracery panelled reveals and corners.
The room over the shop has 2 skew-plan raised crucks with arch braced
collars and evidence of wind-bracing, moulded Tudor arch fireplace. Rear
room (lst floor) as plain Tudor arch fireplace, above is a tie-beam roof
with wide braces and a square ridge. Laithwaite's interpretation (the
earliest recorded one room house refronted C16, floored C17 and rear wing
of c.1600) needs revision.
