662-1/7/246 (North side)


House at end of row. Mid to late C18, with mid C19
alterations. Rendered and colourwashed, double Roman tile
roof, brick stacks. A narrow-frontage property with parallel
roofs and central valley; each range has a rear eaves stack.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, one large 12-pane sash to segmental head
above 2 small inserted windows. At each end is a panelled
pilaster, that to the right with coved cornice, not continued
to the eaves. The twin gables facing E are both coped, and
there are various C20 casements, and a central C20 door. At
the NW corner is a panelled pilaster similar to those on the
INTERIOR: not inspected.
This property was cut back in the 1930s when the corner of The
Liberty and St Andrew Street was modified for a road widening.
The site has been occupied at least since the C13, when the
street was known as Byestwel. This property was probably
rebuilt at the same times as Nos 5 and 6 (qqv), with which it
shares some detail, and is included for group value.
