central ridge stack. Each side are 6-panel fielded doors with
fanlights to pilaster doorcase and slight open pediment. The
building is straight jointed each side.
At back is 3-storey, 2-windowed, with 2-light C18 multi-pane
casement and lofty arched 30-pane sash, above a tripartite
16-pane to cambered arch and a 20-pane; at lowest level a very

INTERIOR: best surviving work in No.67/68, which has a
throughway, left, and an interior timber-framed spine wall.
Main stair a delicate open-string winder, parallel with spine
wall, mahogany swept and wreathed rail and very slender turned
balusters; this through 2 storeys. A second, service stair
immediately behind with heavy moulded rail, square newels and
turned balusters, all painted, and a C18 circular skylight
with moulded radial bars. Tight brick winder stair with wood
nosings to basement with brick floor and chamfered beam, some
brick barrel-vaulted sections. Many C18 panelled doors.
It is unfortunate that most of the windows to the central unit
have lost their bars; replacement would give distinction to
the facade. The property on the corner of St Mary's Lane was
formerly the Abbey Garage; an NMR photograph shows the
frontage in that form.
