Listing Text


1685-1/6/50 (South side)
22/12/53 No.16


House, formerly 2 houses, originally part of a row of 5, now
offices. Mid C18, raised and altered C19. Sandstone ashlar
with ashlar dressings on the front and side, coursed rubble on
the rear with a rendered second storey. Slate roof hipped to
the left with a chimney set back towards the rear, and a gable
chimney stack to the right. T-plan with a double-depth front
range, with a 2-storey bow window on the back wall to the
left, and a rear wing extended into a former outbuilding.
3 storeys above a cellar and 6 bays under an eaves cornice,
with the doorway in the third bay and with chamfered quoins to
the left, and to the right on the second floor above the
junction with No.14 (qv). The sill bands on first and second
floors return around the left-hand gable wall, where there is
a window on each floor. All the windows have moulded
architraves, as does the doorway, and are sashed without
glazing bars. The doorway is approached up a flight of 4 steps
with railings of cast-iron 'turned' balusters and standards
with urn finials. The recessed door has 9 panels and an
integral overlight. Rebuilt stonework to the right of the
door, and the Ordnance Survey 5 feet to one mile map surveyed
in 1845, suggest that there were originally paired entrance
doorways in the 2 central bays.
