673-1/8/217 (South side)


Shop and house, part of the former house now used as offices.
The eastern side wall is ancient (C17 or earlier), but main
building rebuilt in the late C18/early C19 with some later
modernisation. Mixed construction; stone rubble side walls and
plastered timber-framed front and back walls; stone rubble
stacks in left side wall with rendered brick chimneyshafts;
slate roof.
PLAN: The ancient eastern side wall suggests the former
existence of a C17 front block, gallery and rear block plan
merchant's house, rebuilt in the early C19, when the whole
building was raised in height and a staircase built in the
former courtyard, connected to the front by a right-hand side
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. 2-window front modernised in the late C19
with a good new timber shop front; single-light plate glass
windows on low stallboards of glazed brick, each side of
recessed doorway containing bottom-panelled glazed door.
Passage doorway to right under overlight with central glazing
bar. Full-width fascia with moulded cornice and cast-iron
crest between large brackets featuring stooks of wheat (for a
bakery presumably). Plaster above lightly blocked out as
ashlar with rusticated quoins each end and 2-window front of
late C19 horned 4-pane sashes. Plain eaves to hipped roof.
Left (east) end is roughcast but clearly shows sections of the
ancient side wall which corbels out at the front to take
jetties. The former courtyard gap is filled with slate-hung
timber-framing and contains, amongst other sashes with glazing
bars, a tall 24-pane sash.
INTERIOR: Side passage with stone-flagged floor through front
block to a small courtyard/light well with stairblock to right
containing a stick-baluster stair. Other late C18 and C19
joinery detail and other features.
