(Formerly Listed as:
(South side)
Bowden Warehouse)


Warehouse, probably built for fellmongers in 1860s. Red brick
piers with panels of weatherboarded timber-framing between
them. Slated roof. Red brick chimney at left-hand (east) end
of rear wall. Plan oblong, 1 room deep. The building is set
well back from Bull Court behind a courtyard, the latter with
late C20 buildings on left-hand side.
3 storeys. 3-bay band on piers at first and 2nd-floor levels.
Ground storey largely bricked in. Upper storeys retain
weatherboarding. Irregular fenestration. Each of the 2
right-hand windows in the 2nd storey has a large 9-pane
window. Third storey has 2 windows in left-hand bay: 6-paned
sash to left, 2-light casement with 4-paned transom-light to
right. No windows in right-hand bay; middle bay has a 5-paned
transom-light, possibly relating to a larger blocked window.
Rear and side walls are all visible from either Bull Court or
Green Lane. Rear wall has similar fenestration to front. Side
walls have plain, windowless weatherboarding between the
corner piers, except for solid rendered side wall in ground
storey to right, facing Green Lane. These seem to be the
fellmongery premises which Gardiner described in 1897 as
having been erected 30 years previously in Bull Court by Mr H
Balment. They were later sold to the Barnstaple Bridge Trust
and diverted to other uses.
(Gardiner WF: Barnstaple, 1837-97: Barnstaple: 1897-: 86-7).
