SS5533SE CROSS STREET
684-1/7/107 (South side)
House and shop, now offices. Early C19, or possibly earlier.
Solid rendered front wall, probably of brick or stone. Slated
roof with red ridge-tiles. No chimneys visible from street.
Simple rectangular plan, 3 rooms wide and one room deep on
second floor. Left-hand room heated by gable chimney,
right-hand rooms by a single rear chimney. Late C19 staircase
in rear right-hand corner.
3 storeys. 3-window range. Ground storey has pair of canted
shop windows with space for a former doorway between, the
whole finished with a continuous entablature. Existing doorway
to right. Upper-storey windows have 8-paned sashes, except for
the middle window of each storey which is blind. Moulded
wooden board below the eaves, carrying the gutter.
INTERIOR: considerably altered on ground and first floors; C18
cupboard doors with raised-and-fielded ovolo-moulded panels
and strap-hinges on first floor. On second floor, middle room
has fireplace with moulded wood architrave; 2 doors with 4
ovolo-moulded panels, one with original metal catch. Front
wall is thinner at this level, thickening only where it
supports the roof-trusses; this may be evidence that the
structure is earlier, having been heightened in early C19.
Roof structure, probably of latter date, survives. Trusses
have notched apexes, through purlins and ridge, and collars
nailed to the faces of the trusses; some old common rafters
The best feature of the building is the shop front, the
earliest one surviving in the main shopping areas of the town.
