SP 0937 BROADWAY CP HIGH STREET (north side)
8/40 No 44 (Yew Tree House)
30.7.59
GV II
Shop. C17, with possible earlier remains and C19 and C20 alterations.
Squared limestone with stone slate roof. At the left is a gabled cross-
wing of two storeys with attic and one bay. On the ground floor is a C20
bowed window. The first floor has a casement window and the attic has a
sashed window: both have plain reveals. The gable is coped. At the right
is a two-bay range of one storey with attic. At the left on the ground
floor is a tripartite sashed window with glazing bars within a blocked
C17 window with drip course. At the right is a canted bay window with glaz-
ing bars on a stone base. A leaded canopy extends over the doorway to its
left. The upper storey is lit by casement windows with glazing bars set
within enlarged rebated and chamfered surrounds. They have hoods and are
partly within dormer gables. Above the left-hand window is a sundial plaque
with iron gnomon. The doorway has plain reveals. Chimney to right of cross-
wing. Interior: the ground floor rooms of the main range have chamfered and
stopped ceiling beams. To the right of the doorway is a timber-framed partition
wall, now partly removed. The central room has a stone inglenook with splayed
sides and timber bressummer. Its rear wall is of timber-framing in square
panels. There is also some framing at the junction between the cross-wing
and the main range. It is not clear from the exposed timbers whether the
building incorporates part of an earlier timber-framed structure. In the
C17 some local stone buildings were built using timber-framing for rear walls
and internal partitions. The upper storey was not accessible at time of
survey (December 1986).
