684-1/9/128 (East side)
31/12/73 No.19


House and shop. Late C17 or early C18, probably extended at
rear early or mid C19; late C20 addition, also at rear. Brick:
painted Flemish bond at the front, exposed English bond at the
rear. C19 addition rendered. Slated roofs, except for C20
addition which has a flat roof. Single-depth plan with added
rear range on right-hand side, probably overlapping No.18
(qv), a gallery links rear range to a back block, now part of
No.20 (qv), extending to churchyard.
3 storeys. 2-window range. C20 shop front in ground storey,
rising to cills of 2nd-storey windows. Upper-storey windows
have flat gauged arches and recessed box-frames. C20 wood
casements in 2nd storey; late C19 sashes each with one
vertical glazing bar, in 3rd storey. Dentilled eaves cornice.
Old 8-paned sash window at rear of C19 addition; 4-paned wood
casement in gallery.
INTERIOR: wholly altered in ground and first floors, although
there is a good C19 marble chimneypiece in a first-floor room
originally forming the rear part of No.18 (qv). Second floor
and roof-structure of No.19 not inspected.
The layout of this building, including the back block (qv),
provides an interesting and unusual example of the evolution
of an urban site.
