8/23 No 1



Shops; probably always so: C19 mid. In two parts, themselves part of a larger
department store. Brick (colourwashed) with plain clay tiled roofs, brick
chimney stack to right-hand side. Left half of 3-storeys of 2-bays, seemingly
specially designed as a sympathetic extension to 25 High Street (q.v.). Modern
shopfronts to ground floor; segmental arched 2-light casements to first floor,
with gauged brick arches and plain labels over: to second floor 2-double sash
windows in plain openings, with flat gauged brick arches. Brick pilasters to
each side, with string course through above second floor; then panels in the
pilasters, a thin cornice and a brick parapet hiding the roof. The right half
plainer, also 3-storeys of 2-bays and at slightly lower levels: modern ground
floor shop front and late C20 windows in plain openings with flat gauged brick
arches to first floor: the second floor has two 4-pane sash windows in similar
openings. The interior considerably altered. This property included for its
group value on the corner site, as well as being integral with other listed
buildings, Nos 24/25 High Street and Nos 3 and 5 Hendford, (q.v.).
