5275 STRAND STREET
TR 5558 1/400 No 10
House. Circa early C17, faced in brick in circa early C19 and altered in C20.
Timber-framed faced in brick in Flemish bond. First floor of front rendered and
timber-framing exposed in gable. Plain clay tile roof, gabled at front and
hipped at back. C20 brick stack at right-hand side at rear. Plan: Rectangular
plan, end onto street. The original internal arrangement is uncertain and so is
the number of timber-frame bays. It is now of 2-room plan with a large front
room with direct entry from the street and a C20 stack on the right-hand side.
The smaller rear room had a stack on the rear end wall (old photo) before it was
removed and replaced by a doorway to the late C20 single storey outshut at the
back. In circa early C19 the timber-frame was faced in brick. In the C20 the
front (approximately 3 metres) of the building was demolished to widen the
street. No 8 adjoining to the right was also similarly reduced and the whole
which was then in one ownership, was given a uniform facade with a jettied first
floor and timber-framing exposed in the gables. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmet-
rical 2-window gabled front. The ground-floor is red brick and has a C20 16-
pane hornless sash to the right and a C20 panelled door to the left. The first
floor is rendered and jettied out on round-ended joists and has 2 C20 12-pane
sashes. The gable above is also jettied and has exposed vertical close-studding
with curved tension braces and C20 wavey bargeboards with pendants. At the rear
end there is a C20 single-storey outshut and a C20 bay window alcove. Interior:
Wall-posts are visible on the ground and first floor but no other timber-framing
except for ceiling beams is exposed. The roof has been replaced with a C20
soft-wood structure (probably after bomb damage in the Second World War). The
large front room has a chamfered cross-beam with almost run-out stops and a late
C20 fireplace and staircase. The smaller back room which was originally heated
from a fireplace on the back wall has an ovolo-moulded axial beam without stops
and on the left-hand side what appears to be the exposed rail of the timber-
frame with a wide cavetto moulding like a cornice. Between the 2 rooms a C18
door with 2 panels below the rail and 12-panes above with Crown glass, and thick
ovolo-moulded glazing bars. It has L-shaped hinges, and is in its original
moulded frame with a 6-pane overlight above. It is unlikely that the building
has much earlier than C17 origins because this side of The Strand is said to be
a post-Medieval development.
