6/139 No 80


Shop with storage over. Probably 1764, with mid C20 alterations. Rendered,
C20 pantile roof. 3 storeys, 3 first-floor windows. Left - segmental
carriage arch with notice 'Whitley Yard', a 3-light C20 casement to first
and second floors. Right - C20 shop front with plate-glass windows to
ground floor, 2 segmental-headed sash windows with glazing bars, in flush
wood architraves, to first and second floors. Between the first-floor
windows a notice, 'Cromwell House'. End and central ridge stacks. Included
for group value. There is a strong local tradition that Oliver Cromwell
stayed at a house on this site during the seige of the Castle. At the
rebuild of the house the floor boards of the room over the arch were
retained. On examination at resurvey the boards appeared to be C19
replacements, now covered by linoleum. A drawing made c1970 by Arnold
Walker, a local artist, shows the rooms over the archway with small bay
W A Atkinson, Knaresborough and its Manor Houses, Knaresborough, 1924.
