Listing Text

(east side)

8/87 No 3 (The Moat Cafe) with
wall to right (formerly
15.5.68 listed as The Moat Cafe)


Warehouse or outbuilding, now cafe, and attached wall. C17-C18 with C20
restoration. Rendered, Westmorland slate roof. 2 storeys and attic, 1 x 2
bays. Entrance in south gable end with glazed door and 6-pane cafe window
to left. First floor: central side-sliding sash with glazing bars
heightened by additional 4 panes. Second floor: central 3-light side-
sliding sash with glazing bars. Stub of chimney at north gable end. Left
return: two 4-pane casments to ground floor, large panelled signboard above.
East side has a long window with small panes below eaves, now painted over.
3 windows on west side covered by hoarding. Single-storey addition to
north, not of special interest. Interior: crude joists to ground and first
floors, with round-arched fire-place against north first-floor wall. Second
floor: 2 roof trusses visible, probably C18. Wall to right: limestone
approximately 2 metres high and 6 metres long, linking with south-west
corner of no 1 Castlegate (q.v.). Flat coping. Two C20 doors give access
to rear of no 1. This cafe is remembered as an outbuilding to no 1
Castlegate and was probably used as a stable. The height suggests that it
may have been built as a warehouse or small factory.
