Offices, former house. C16 with C18 facade. Timber-framed,
rendered, all colourwashed, underbuilt in brick at ground
floor, clay pantiled roof, hipped to north end (right), behind
high parapet; brick chimney stack on stone base.
PLAN: the ground floor has been opened up, but was 2-room
front, with major room back right, and staircase to the left;
may have had a jettied front, underbuilt in C19. To the right
the lower wall exposed in the carriageway to the adjoining
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, two wide bays. Shop front with fascia at
relatively low level across front and short returns of
building, moulded cornice, central half-glazed door in simple
doorway, with plain 3-light window to left and 2-light to
right, with thin mullions, the sills almost at ground level.
First and second floors have 12-pane sash windows set flush,
with timber architraves; parapet, clad with horizontal timber
boarding has simple moulding below and as coping. The roof at
the rear, also with pantiles, sweeps down, and there is a face
dormer in coursed rubble, with a 2-light stone ovolo-mould
casement, much distorted, to the staircase.
INTERIOR: the ground floor, rear right, has remains of a C16
compartmental ceiling, with moulded beams on 3 sides, but with
cross-beam removed, and cut away over a door on the N side. At
first floor the front right room has a C16 chamfered beam
papered over, and the adjoining room has a transverse beam
across the partition; a C19 fireplace has Art Nouveau tile
insets. Some lath and plaster is exposed in the front wall,
and at the party walls remains of tie members to framing are
partly exposed. The roof, only partly inspected, has heavy
principals with saddle top, and 2 purlins.
The small vertical scale of this early building is especially
noticeable adjacent to the adjacent C19 rebuilding of No.13
