5/15 Premises of Palmer Snell,
adjoining Nos 1 & 2 to the East



Town House, now offices. Probably late C18 but apparently re-fronted c1830.
Brick colourwashed, with double Roman concrete tiles between coped gables; brick
chimney stack on East side. 2-storey main facade of 3-bays. Centrally placed
6-panellod door with Regency style doorcase incorporating flat Roman Doric
unfluted pilasters supporting entablature with reeding and shallow flat head,
with cast iron fret over: 16-pane sash windows to either side (both bottom
casements having lost their glazing bars) with matching windows above, and a
central window of 12-panes, all in plain openings with flat gauged brick arches.
Cornice moulding and simple stone parapet. The East return wall shows keying of
new facade; random coursed stone with small circular window near crown of gable
- there is a modern casement at ground floor level and a 16-pane window at first
floor. Interior much altered, with little orignal work left. The late C19 rear
extension not of interest. The property dominates the bottom of Silver Street.
