2/64 Nos 20 and 22
Pair of houses, late C17, altered probably late C18. Sandstone rubble with
tile roof. Double-depth plan. 2 storeys. No. 20, at the right, of 2 bays.
Windows have stone surrounds with moulded sills. 1st floor windows are of
3 lights and retain their flat-faced mullions. Left-hand ground-floor
surround now has 2 sashes with central mullion. Right-hand ground-floor
window reconstructed, with 2 sashes. The door, between bays, has a
chamfered surround of C17 type. The stonework shows evidence for the
original wider window openings and for a blocked fire window at the left.
No.22, at the left, is of one bay. It may be of the same build as No.20,
but if so its openings have been altered. The ground-floor window has
plain reveals. The 1st floor one is of 3 lights with plain stone surround
and flat-faced mullions. Door, at left, has chamfered stone surround.
Chimneys to each side of No.20. Inside, 'No.20 has 2 ceiling beams in its
left-hand room with quarter round mouldings, the left-hand one chamfered
on the left-hand side. Mortices in the soffit of the latter suggest that
it was the upper of 2 firehood beams. The present shouldered fireplace is
C18. The right-hand room also has a beam with quarter round mouldings. At
the rear is a dog-leg stair with turned balusters and closed string. On
the 1st floor it is enclosed by walls of C17 moulded square panelling.
