timber-framed range. Street elevation: 2 late C20 shop fronts with central passage

dentilled eaves-band; left corner rounded. Attic: 3 round-arched dormers with
6-pane sashes and overlights. Rear: front range has external stack with small
1st floor window on right. Timber-framed range has 6-panel part glazed door and
variety of C20 windows. Interior: front range at rear has 6 panel door (near stair)
and short section of chamfered spine-beam with stepped cyma stop. Timber-framed
range: frame survives best on 1st floor, where there are jowelled wall posts,
close-studded wall framing with long arched braces up to wall-platts and tie-beams;
in central bay a 2-light window with diamond-set mullion to rear wall and later
2-light window to right bay; tie-beams support crown posts which have straight
braces up to collar purlin (some braces removed), old rafters, apparently
smoke-blackened in end bays but not in centre. Ground floor retains some old wide
spaced joists and floorboards, and a sawn-off chamfered spine beam in right bay.
The front range probably replaces a pre-existing timber-framed building.
