TL 51 SW SHEERING THE STREET,
Lobby-entrance house, C17, extended in C18 and C19. Timber framed, roughcast
rendered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays aligned approx. NE-SW
with axial chimney stack in middle bay, forming a lobby-entrance, C17. Rear
chimney lean-to extension, C18. Extended to NE in early C19 with contemporary
lean-to at rear and double chimney stack to form a separate cottage. Main
house divided into 2 cottages about the same time, subsequently re-combined.
2 storeys. Ground-floor, one plain boarded door, one glazed door, 3 C19 cast
iron casement windows. First floor, 3 C19 cast iron casement windows. Roof
half-hipped at both ends. Axial beams in both ground floor rooms of original
house, plain chamfered with lamb's tongue stops, joists plastered to soffits.
Roof altered. An interesting feature of this house is that the combed designs
in the plaster of the NE wall of the original building and its rear extension
are still present as internal surfaces in the extension, enclosed since the
early C19, a rare survival.
