Listing Text


653-1/12/783 (South side)
Building to the rear of No.1A


Warehouse, original use unknown, but non-domestic, and perhaps
agricultural or storage. Early C17. Timber-framed with plain
tiled roof. 2 storeys, undivided internally on each floor.
Timber-framed in square panels with some tension bracing, and
arch bracing in gable walls. 5 bays, the roof trusses showing
evidence of alterations perhaps associated with raising the
height of the roof: the tie beams which are below the level of
the wall plate, are linked to a collar by a raking brace,
itself braced to the wall plate. 2 purlins each side, and wind
braces. There is little structural evidence for the original
use of the building, but the absence of stack, and its
position behind the main building line, suggests that it was
originally a service building.
