Listing Text


900-1/3/49 (West side)
04/07/52 Nos.7 AND 7A


House with warehouse to rear. Early C17. Colour-washed cob on
a rubblestone plinth, slate-hung to part of rear wall facing
yard; gabled slate roof to rear range, slate roof to cross
wing (mostly replaced in artificial slate), thatch to No.7A to
the right; rubblestone stacks finished in brick.
PLAN: 3 ranges built around a narrow courtyard. Front range of
2 units with rear lateral stack heating room to right of
unheated room, probably built as a throughway providing access
to rear yard. 2-unit cross wing to the left, heated by front
gable-end stack. Former warehouse range parallel to rear has a
C19 rear lateral stack.
2 storeys; 4-window range. C20 windows to the cross wing, mid
C19 10/10-pane sashes to No.7A. The courtyard has C19
three-light casement windows to the rear warehouse and a C17
ovolo-mullioned 3-light window adjoining stack to the front
room on right.
INTERIOR: boxed beams to the right, stop-chamfered beams to
the cross wing; the cobbled through-way, now covered over, has
a chamfered lintel over a wide opening to the rear yard. To
the first floor is a C18 2-panelled door. The roof of the
front range is not accessible. The cross wing has a 4-bay roof
(not accessible) with boxed principle rafters and purlins. The
rear warehouse range, partially inspected, has C17/18 collar
truss with ridge-in-notch apex.
This is an interesting example of a C17 merchant's house with
its own warehouse outbuilding.
