Listing Text


758-1/2/86 (East side)
01/07/76 Nos.65 AND 67


House, now divided into 2. Early C15, refronted and divided
late C18. Rendered limestone rubble with brick ridge and
left-hand axial stacks and stone slate roof.
PLAN: 3-room plan with through-passage formerly backing onto
hall on right (No.65) with former service end to left (No.67);
C15 hall open to fine arch-braced ceiling but with little
evidence of smoke blackening; the upper end of the hall was
rebuilt and is now No.63 (qv).
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic; 3-window range. A parapeted
front, near-symmetrical to No.65 with a central, recessed
doorway with half-glazed door, recessed windows, paired
4/4-pane right-hand sashes and matching double left-hand
casements, with 8/8-pane first-floor sashes, and a small
dormer; No.67 has a left-hand doorway with 3-pane overlight
and 6-panel door, the top pair glazed, paired 4/4-pane
ground-floor sash and 8/8-pane first-floor sash.
Rubble rear elevation has C18 brick rebuilt left-hand
INTERIOR: 5-bay roof with faint soot blackening extending
across Nos 65 and 67, with chamfered, arch-braced collars,
wind braces or their mortices to tenoned purlins, and a
threaded ridge beam, the upper faces of the trusses facing to
the right-hand end, with lath and plaster partitions; No.65
has ceiling beams with wide chamfers on first-floor and a C15
moulding in the left-hand bedroom, and similarly-moulded
probably re-set ceiling beam in the ground-floor right-hand
room; steps down to cellar cut into rock on line of former
through-passage beside inserted stack; C18 stone fire surround
with moulded sides and roundels. No.67 has a winder stair to
the rear of a left-hand stack, projecting into No.69 (qv) to
the left.
HISTORICAL NOTE: a former hall house on the fringe of the town
with a through-passage on the line of the stack, with inserted
first-floor ceiling, axial stack and facade. The ridge and
bracing are identical to that in the early C15 No.9 Oxford
Street (qv).
