House and shop. Early C19 with mid C19 shopfront.
MATERIALS: Street front rendered with pebbledash above and the ground floor of the north western side is of pebbles with red brick quoins but the building is otherwise of brick. Hipped roof, formerly tiled, with a truncated brick chimneystack.
PLAN: Rectangular with narrow street frontage, three rooms on each floor with rear staircase.
EXTERIOR: The street front is rendered on the ground floor and pebbledashed above. The upper floor has a marginally-glazed sash window with moulded architrave and the ground floor has a mid C19 canted bay shopfront and left side doorcase, the top four panels glazed with two panels below and a plinth. The north western elevation has a dentilled eaves cornice and two sliding casements to the first floor. The ground floor has two blocked doorcases and a sliding casement. The south eastern wall is of C20 red and yellow brick and was the end wall to a demolished adjoining property.
INTERIOR: The ground floor front room has a reused beam with runout stops. The central room has an 1820s or 1830s wooden fireplace with reeded architraves and paterae, a reeded dado rail, partially overlaid on some walls with later plank panelling and remains of some wooden shelving. The rear room (probably originally the kitchen) retains a brick floor, a fireplace with cambered head and has a wooden plank partition leading to a C19 winder staircase. Four-panelled doors are reported to the upper floor.
HISTORY: This building appears on the first edition O S map. As the shopfront is of a later date than a fireplace it was probably built as a house with a shop added later.
SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE: An early C19 house of brick and some local pebbles with rendered front and mid C19 shopfront, retaining some original internal features and grouping with other listed buildings.
