WIGAN

SD5805NW THE WIEND
24-1/7/88 (South West side)
11/01/96 Nos.5, 7 AND 9

GV II

Row of 3 town houses, altered as shops; all now derelict.
Probably mid C18; raised and altered in C19. Mostly brown
handmade brick in English garden wall bond (3+1), with ashlar
plinth and dressings, slate roof. Probably double-depth plan,
all single-fronted.
Now 3 storeys but probably formerly 2 storeys, a 5-window
range. Offset left of centre are 2 doorways, that on the left
square-headed, with C18 "rusticated and keyed" wedge lintel,
the other round-headed with set-in architrave including
consoles to moulded lintel and small keystone. Left of these
doorways is a simple shop front framed by fluted pilasters;
right of it are 2 shop windows, the 1st with plain surround
and the 2nd (incorporating a door) with sunk panel pilasters
and prominent cornice. At 1st floor are 5 windows with raised
sills and "rusticated and keyed" lintels. 2nd floor, of later
C19 brick has segmental-headed sashes with gauged red brick
heads. Most openings boarded at time of survey.
INTERIOR not accessible.
HISTORY: interesting example of Georgian town houses built in
narrow wiend, probably in earliest phase of domestic building
on rear of ancient burgage plots. In poor condition at time of
survey (1992). Forms group with Nos 4-14 opposite (qv).
