Listing Text


639-1/11/310 (West side)
12/07/72 Nos.36A, 36B, 37 AND 38
(Formerly Listed as:
(West side)
Nos.36, 37 AND 38)


3 separate houses, now subdivided in a very complex way. C16
core, early to mid C19 alterations, followed by extensive C20
remodelling of the interiors. Timber-framed, with render to
No.36 and white brick fronts to Nos 37 and 38. Gabled
plaintiled roofs to No.36, shallow pitched slate roofs with a
paired bracketed eaves cornice to Nos 37 and 38.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellars. Entry to No.36 is in the
return front of No.35 (qv), facing north. It has a single
small-paned sash window above a door with 6 raised fielded
panels, panelled architraves and cornice. The ground storey
has been largely absorbed into No.37; on the upper storeys are
2 flats, mainly within the rear range, set at right-angles to
the street.
4 window range to Nos 37 and 38: 16-pane sashes to the ground
and 1st storeys, 8-pane to the 2nd storey, all in plain
reveals with flat gauged arches and projecting stone sills. 2
recessed entrance doors, each with 6 raised fielded panels,
the top 2 now glazed; segmental-headed fanlights with
decorative glazing-bars above the doorways, which have Greek
Doric columns in antis. A change in the colour of the
brickwork indicates that the 2nd storey is an addition.
INTERIOR: No.38 has a boarded cellar with a good chamfered
main beam and wide flat joists. There is surviving evidence of
the timber frame, including indications of a jettied front. A
gabled rear range is linked to the front by a chimney-stack
with one open fireplace. An internal rear doorway is in line
with the front door and has a similar surround and fanlight. A
large rear room, part of a range added in the early C19, has
shallow arched recesses to each side of the fireplace and an
ornate plaster frieze. It was formerly part of No.37.
