Listing Text


12/54 No. 28 including
stores and garage
to rear


Probably former stabling, now shop, stores and garage. Mid-C17 with
partial mid- to late-C19 remodelling and mid- to late-C20 refacing to
front. Timber framed, weatherboarded and mid- to late-C19 brick-faced
to north, rendered to rear and C20 cement-rendered to front; slate and
corrugated iron roofs. 6 framed bays. Framing: square panels with
short corner braces (concealed). One storey and attic. Toothed brick
eaves cornice to north-west and 2 late-C19 gabled eaves dormers to north-
west with 2-light leaded casements. Mid- to late-C20 two-light casement
above exposed wallplate in gable to front; 2 mid- to late-C20 plate
glass shop windows flanking central mid- to late-C19 half-glazed panelled
door. Late-C19 coursed limestone rubble lean-to at rear with corrugated
asbestos roof. Interior: double purlin roof; queen strut trusses with
V-struts above collars; main frame-posts chamfered and stopped up to
moulded capitals below junctions with rails and main transverse floor
beams; short chamfered and stopped posts with moulded capitals and
short corner braces supporting main transverse floor beams in centre.
It is possible that this building was formerly at least partly open-
fronted to the north (see chamfered posts with no evidence of mortises
below moulded capitals). One possible explanation would be that the
building was once stabling and carriage accommodation.
