Listing Text

TQ 7468
7/63 Nos 78 and 80
Two houses, now with shops. Late C18 (and forming part of a
range that includes No 82: see note below). Brick with some
early fine pointing; Kent tile mansard roof. 3 storeys with
dormered attic. Large, brick ridge stack. Each unit with
lateral entrance hall and stairs, and 3-storeyed rear wings.
Front: each with 2 windows to each upper sloor, all 6-pane
hornless sashes. Parapet and brick cornice. Flat-roofed dormers
with 2-light casement windows. Circa 1900-style plate-glass shop
fronts. Some sash windows to rear, and 2 2-light casements with
leaded lights to No 80.

Note: the front range forms part of a single-phase development
which includes No 82 (qv). No 82 is separately listed because
it contains internal features belonging to the medieval house to
the rear known as Philip Lodge (or 82A High Street) qv. The
front elevation should be considered in conjunction with No 82.
