Listing Text

TQ 7468
7/42 No 10
Former house (probably with shop) now offices. Some of the
structure may date from the early C16, but it was largely rebuilt
in the C17 with considerable later alterations. Timber framed
(details of framing not visible) with Kent tiled gable-end roof.
The building is set end-on to the street. 2 storeys with gabled
attic. Ground floor with late-C20 shop front and recessed
doorway. 1st floor jettied; this and the attic with all-over
plaster render. One tripartite window to each upper floor, each
light with segmental head, the light to the 1st floor only with
horizontal glazing bar. No 10 stands well forward of No 8, and
the side wall is partly made up of the returned yellow brick wall
of No 8, with blocking courses, dentilled eaves and a dummy 1st
floor window. This whole wall, however, acts as an external
chimney stack to No 10, with clay pots above the eaves cornice.
