History

Built in the early C19 and shown on the 1834 town map.

Exterior

Belongs to a group of 6-8 High Street.

A pair of late Georgian houses of coursed rubble stone with graded slate roof and end stacks rebuilt in brick. 3 storeys, each a single window range together forming a near-symmetrical pair. Paired central doorways have replaced panelled doors with radial-glazed overlights. Flanking windows are 16-pane hornless sashes to right, paired 8-pane horned sashes to left, hornless sashes of 12 and 9-panes aligned in first and second storeys. All openings have flat arched stone voussoir heads.

The L gable end of No 8 is rendered where an attached house has been taken down, and has an attached coped stone wall flanking a gateway to a car park behind. At the rear are doorways with shallow segmental heads to the inner sides, each with replaced boarded doors. No 6 is otherwise blank at the back. No 8 has inserted 4-pane sash windows in each storey.

Reasons for Listing
