Listing Text


1685-1/6/35 (East side)
18/02/70 No.9
(Formerly Listed as:
(South East side)
Nos.9 AND 9A)


House, now flats and shop. Late C18, altered and partly
rebuilt c1975 and perhaps originally the right-hand half of a
pair. Sandstone ashlar facade in narrow courses with plain
quoins, with rebuilt coursed rubble to the rear and sides,
rendered on the left. Composition tile roof with gable chimney
to the right.
3 storeys above a tall basement, expressed as a plinth with
deep coursed stonework, and 3 bays under an eaves cornice. The
windows, which have 12-pane sashes, some recent replacements,
have raised plain surrounds with a sill band on the ground
floor and, on second floor, lintels linked into a band below
the cornice. The doorway, on the far left, also has a raised
plain surround and is reached up a flight of 6 nosed steps
with iron railings on both sides. The deeply-recessed door
originally had 9 raised and fielded panels, but the top panels
are now glazed. To the right of the doorway is the original
entrance to the basement and the shop, now down steps but
originally through a trap door. The rear has a recent
ground-floor extension and a wide very tall staircase window
to the right.
