Listing Text

The following building shall be added to the list:-

(south side)

4/10000 No 85 (The Hollies)


House. Early to mid C17, with some C19 alterations. Brick in Flemish bond with brick
dressings and roof of plain tile. Two-cell lobby-entry house. Two stories and three-window
range; basement to right-hand cell only. Narrow lobby before newel stair rising to loft; axial
brick stack on line, behind the stair and breaking the ridge line; the stack bay framed by pair
of bridge beams with corner rolls, the stops embedded in wall plaster; each ground-floor room
with identical bridge beam exposed. Stone flags to left-hand cell. Gauged brick lintels to
ground-flor windows, front elevation, of early C19 date; painted timber-framed entrance porch
with lean-to roof of late C19 or early C20 date. Brick dentil cornice to roof on front and rear;
return gable end finishes as parapet with kneelers; tumbled-in brick work to the gable,
interrupted by C20 part re-building of parapet. Rear elevation of three-window range, with
two single-storey additions and long roof dormer of C20 date. Interior: In the early C20,
panelling installed through most of the house; C18 or early C19 panel with architraves and H-L
hinges in many rooms. The doors and hinges appear to have been installed in this century,
when many elements of old houses found their way into the area. The structure was, for a time,
divided into two cottages, and formed part of a row which included no 86. Building line of no
85 set well back from no 86, the return of which has part brick facing with broken join to
bricks of no 85, suggesting that this facing postdates the construction of no 86. The elevation
of no 85 has been repaired with modern bricks in places,the whole surface appears to have been
cleaned since 1945. The roof structure and some of the floor joists extend into former crosswing
of no 86 Market Hill.
