Shop premises with domestic accommodation above and behind. Probably mid to late
C17 with circa early C19 alterations. Stone rubble with roughcast to timber stud
front wall with deeply coved eaves. Dry slate roof with gabled ends. Some of the
early crested ridge tiles survive. Range at rear whitewashed granite rubble.
Original plan not clear, but it appears to have been 2 heated rooms on the ground
floor, both rooms entered from one central lobby and each with fireplace on shared
stack on rear wall which also serves fireplace without oven to large room in
parallel range at rear. Carriageway to right.
2 storeys. 3-window range. First floor 3 late C20 windows with top opening lights
probably in former sash openings. Ground floor 2 late C20 bowed shop windows, the
left one smaller and C20 glazed door in C19 moulded doorframe with flat canopy on
shaped brackets. Carriageway to right with plank doors reset on horizontal slide.
Wooden string over ground storey. Rear of carriageway has rough timber lintel with
chamfer. Parallel range at rear has raised eaves and gabled ends.
Interior: the ground floor has timber stud partition between 2 rooms, the left-hand
room is smaller. Each room has corner fireplace in splayed front of granite stack
with large unchamfered timber lintels and granite rubble jambs. The left-hand room
has later rather cramped framed stair in left-hand corner to first floor room. The
right-hand room has doorway to large room in parallel rear range with large
fireplace (without an oven) on back stack which also serves front fireplaces. It
has large timber chamfered lintel with run-out stops and granite rubble jambs.
Good mid to late C17 staircase in small well at rear of right-hand front room with
closed string, finely turned balusters and newels with ball finials and handrail of
square section with deep roll moulding above. Top balustrade replaced in
facsimile. 2 front first floor rooms each have corner fireplace in rear stack with
unchamfered timber lintel with arched soffit granite jambs and rounded inside.
Room over carriageway unheated. Two 6-panel doors on first floor with large
fielded panel at top and bottom and 2 smaller middle panels side by side.
Roof has nailed trusses with later reinforcing.
This is an interesting later Cl? town house, reputedly a maltster's house.
