1679/6/55 HIGH STREET
15-NOV-88 (West side)

(Formerly listed as:


House, now shop, with long rear range now forming 4 cottages. House rebuilt early C19; early C18 rear range; both with later alterations and C20 and C21 additions.

Front range: painted brick in Flemish bond, Welsh slate roof; 3 storeys, 2 bays; C20 slightly-projecting shop front, with board passage door to left. First and second floor windows are 4-pane sashes with flush exposed sash boxes, projecting ashlar sills and flat arches. To right, lead rainwater pipe and hopper head. Brick end stacks.

Rear range: 4 two storey, brown brick cottages with pantile roofs. Cottages 3 and 4, to the front of the plot, are taller than Nos 1 and 2 to the rear. There is evidence of altered openings and all doors and windows are C21, windows being 2 over 2 wood framed sashes. Each cottage has a door and one ground floor window, with two upper windows. Interiors not inspected: they appear from plans to have retained fireplace positions but have altered staircase positions.

To the rear is an attached single storey new build shop extending to the end of the plot: not of special interest.

HISTORY: 214 High Street was originally a house and was later converted to form shop premises, with the rear range probably originating as warehousing. The rear range was then converted to cottages in the late C18 or early C19. Subsequent to the clearing of the yards in the 1960s, they became workshops and were then incorporated into the shop. The original rear unit has been demolished and the remaining units re-converted to four cottages in the early C21.

214 High Street and 1-4 Applegarth Cottages, Northallerton is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* It is one of a group of buildings fronting the High Street dating from the early nineteenth century and forming part of the historic core of the town
* It retains a number of early and later nineteenth century features
* The rear range, dating to the late eighteenth century or earlier, has evidence of a continuing cycle of alternating use distinctive of market town high streets.
