CHESTER CITY (IM)

SJ4066SE NORTHGATE STREET AND ROW
595-1/4/311 (East side)
Nos.26 & 28 Street

GV II

2 narrow shops, now joined as one shop, each approx 3m wide,
with former living accommodation above. Probably on the site
of a single medieval house, No.26 is probably 1820s and No.28
1830s. No.26 is Flemish bond brown brickwork to front and
No.28 stuccoed brick; grey slate roofs have ridges at right
angles to the street with hips to the front and gable-ends of
English garden wall bond brown brickwork to the rear.
EXTERIOR: No.26 is 4 storeys and No.28 three storeys. The
shopfronts have reeded pilasters, paired at the south end and
between Nos 26 & 28 and triple at the north-west corner of
No.28 to Music Hall Passage; an openwork timber basket arch to
each shopfront and to the passage. Modern glazed shopfronts
set back behind the pilasters and arches. No.26 has a 12-pane
recessed sash to each of the second and third storeys and a
6-pane window to the fourth storey; parapet with moulded
cornice. No.28 has a replaced window to the second storey in
an opening with architrave and entablature, a 9-pane recessed
sash in an architrave to the third storey and a cornice above
a raised panel, beneath a parapet with a plain coping. The
face to the covered Music Hall Passage and the windows to the
rear are altered; flush verges to rear gables. The shops
replaced 2 low 2-storey buildings shown c1820 on Batenham's
engraving.
INTERIOR: there is no evidence of a cellar. Upper rooms have
some simple plaster cornices and panelled window reveals.
