National School, now Citizens' Advice Bureau. 1853 with late
C19 and C20 alterations and extensions. Brick with stone
dressings. Slate roof. Elizabethan style.
EXTERIOR: one and 2 storeys, with 2 gables facing forwards.
The gables have saddlebacked copings, and the coping of the
slightly recessed central bay is stepped upwards. The windows
are double chamfered with mullions and with glazing divided
into small rectangular panes. In front of the left-hand gable
there is a single-storey projection which has a coping which
rises in the centre above a window of 4 lights with transom.
The right-hand return wall of this projection has a tall C20
inserted opening which contains a lower doorway. The main
gable above has a small chamfered opening at the apex, and a
2-light mullioned window. A continuous string course rises
above both gable windows. The central bay has a recess,
probably intended for a plaque, below its coping, and on the
ground floor, below a second string course, it has a cross
window with mullion and transom. The upper part of the
right-hand gable is similar to the left-hand one, except that
below the 2 upper lights the window widens and has 4 lights.
The lower part of the window is cut through by a mid C20
doorway. Chimney visible between the 2 gables towards the rear
of the building.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
Included for group value with the City Walls (qv) and other
buildings on Blossom Street.
