SS5533SE LOVERINGS COURT
684-1/7/203 Buildings to rear of Nos 27 and 28
31/08/88 Boutport Street
(Formerly Listed as:
Older bldgs adj rear of Nos.27&28
Boutport St, inc boundary wall of
court on S)
Includes: Nos.27 AND 28 Boutport Street BOUTPORT STREET.
2 ranges of houses forming a back court behind Nos 27 & 28
Boutport Street (qv). Early C18, possibly a little later than
Nos 27 & 28; the brickwork suggests that the 2 ranges
themselves differ slightly in date. Painted brick except for
rear (S) gable wall of left range, which is of exposed
yellowish-brown brick. Left range is built in Flemish bond;
right range (heavily painted) seems to be in English bond.
Rear gable-wall of right range has been rendered. Left range
is slated with original chimney at rear left-hand corner, its
top rebuilt. Right range has shaped asbestos slates, except
for a fringe of pantiles on the rear gable.
3 storeys with semi-basement. Left range is 5-window range.
All openings are segmental-headed, except in the 3rd storey
where they have flat heads. Windows have 6-paned sashes in
recessed box-frames with flat heads; except for 2nd window
from left in 3rd storey, which has been altered; right-hand
and second and third windows from left in 2nd storey are
blind, as are the right-hand and middle windows of 3rd storey.
Middle opening of ground storey contains a C20 door. Raised
brick bands at first- and 2nd-floor levels. The relationship
of this range to Nos 27 & 28 Boutport Street (qv), abutting
the very edge of the windows in the latter's rear wall,
suggests that it may be a slightly later addition.
Right range is 4-window range, but with the windows more
widely spaced than in the opposite range. Ground-storey
windows have slightly curved heads, but those in the upper
storeys are segmental-headed. All contain flat-headed sashes
of 8 panes in ground storey and 6 panes above; recessed box
frames, except for the left-hand ground-storey window, which
has a concealed frame. At the left-hand end of each upper
storey is a small 6-paned casement window, probably a later
insertion. Ground storey has an original segmental-headed
doorway in this position; moulded C19 door and door frame, the
former with 2 sunk panels below and 2 glazed panes above.
Third bay from right has doorway with 4-panel door and
fanlight (boarded in); above it a flat moulded hood on plain
brackets. Between the first and second bays from right is a
C20 door, probably a later insertion, as is the shop window in
the right-hand bay. Raised brick bands at first- and 2nd-floor
Long rear wall of right range (facing north) is rendered. It
contains 4 windows with barred sashes, including 2 old ones at
the right-hand (W) end of the 2nd and 3rd storeys. Off-centre
to right in 3rd storey is an old fixed-sash window of 20
panes. At left end of ground storey is an old wooden
window-frame, probably of C16 re-set; it is of 2 round-headed,
almost pointed, lights, and appears to be moulded on the inner
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: at the rear of the left range is a yellow
brick, late C19 or early C20 building (not included). Behind
it, to the east, is a section of early boundary wall; stone
rubble with cob at the top capped with pantiles.
Loverings Court has been extended and widened at the east end
to accommodate a late C20 housing development. It is one of
the last, and also the earliest in date, of the back courts
once common in Barnstaple.
