Listing Text



(North East side)
Nos.10 AND 11


Pair of shops. Late C18, with probable earlier core.
Remodelled for John Ashby by Thomas Farnolls Pritchard. Brick
with plain tiled roof.
3 storeys, 4-window range, the windows grouped in pairs each
side of blocked central window space. First and second floor
windows do not align in No.10. Inserted shop fronts flanking
central doorway. Shop fronts are late C19: fascias have been
renewed but enriched architraves survive, and moulded shafts
each side of central doorway to No.10. Recessed double doors,
with ornate moulded woodwork forming shallow pediment and
frieze. Upper windows are 2-pane sashes to first floor, with
flat-arched gauged brick heads. Second-floor windows are
12-pane sashes in No.11, casements in No.10, all with
flat-arched heads. Stone string course between the storeys.
High parapet eaves concealing steeply pitched roof with
suggests that this is the refronting of an earlier structure.
Lead rainwater goods to left, with enriched head.
(Colvin H: A Dictionary of British Architects: London: 1978-).
