3/114 Nos. 60 and 62


- II

Baker's shop, hairdresser's shop and dwellings above and to rear. Built as
one structure in late C16, and known as The King's Head Inn at least by C18;
possibly it was purpose-built as an inn. 2 storeys and attics. 6 windows.
Timber-framed and roughcast; the upper floor is long wall jettied towards the
street. A date cartouche has "1716" in a circle and a square outer frame;
apparently a C20 remodelling of the original. Plaintiled roof with flat-
headed dormers, those above No.60 containing C19 sashes and those above No.62
containing casements. No.60 has mid C19 large-pane sashes, a matching bay
shop window and a panelled entrance door, the large upper panel glazed. No.62
has C18 (perhaps 1716 as in cartouche) windows with slender wooden mullions
and transomes, of 6 and 8 lights and with wrought iron casements. A C19/C20
splayed bay shop window and glazed 3-panelled door to the hairdressers shop.
The main entrance to No.62 has a C20 2-panelled door with steps and a pair of
wrought iron handrails on twisted posts. An original gabled staircase wing at
centre rear has a fine late C16 well staircase with turned heavy balusters and
newel finials.
