Listing Text


849-1/10/195 (North side)
07/08/51 No.24
(Formerly Listed as:
(North side)
Barnes Cafe)


House with shop. Probably C17 or earlier, remodelled in C18.
Slate-hung front, almost certainly timber-framed. Slated roof.
Large rendered chimney with tapered cap at rear (visible from
car park). 2-rooms wide front range with through-passage to
right. Long rear wing to left. 2 storeys with garrets. 4
windows wide. Mid or late C19 shop front. 8-paned sashes in
upper storey. 2 dormer gables of unequal sizes, the
slate-hanging continued up their fronts to eaves level. Each
has a 3-light wood casement with 6 panes per light. Moulded
cornice across each gable at eaves level.
Interior: inspected during building work in 1984. Ground floor
of front range converted to a single shop with side-passage.
At left-hand end in rear wall a tall C17 fireplace with
monolithic granite right-hand jamb and chamfered cranked wood
lintel. Chamfered ceiling-beam with step-stops. Roof trusses
with mortice-and-tenoned collars (mostly now missing),
threaded purlins, no ridge. No substantial division between
this and roof of No 26 (qv), suggesting that the two buildings
could originally have been one.
(Notes: Laithwaite M).
