II*
The description shall be amended to read:-

Shops, probably originally houses. Circa 1700 with C17 rear block.
Rendered. Concrete and pantiles. Corner site. 3 storeys. 9 bays with
central 3 projecting. Cl9 corner shop front and two C20 shopfronts.
Sash windows throughout with glazing bars, except in 4 first floor
windows. Raised and moulded surrounds with flat hoods at first floor,
continuing into stringcourse. Canted oriel window at first floor
extreme right. Iron-work balconies to windows. Rusticated quoins and
panels between windows. Elaborate modillion eaves cornice. central,2-
storey dormer gable, rusticated on lower level with 2 sashes and one top
casement. Three small gabled dormers. Hipped roof. Interior: Only No. 27
inspected inside. Good circa 1700 open well through all floors with
moulded string below shaped tread ends, twisted balusters, moulded hand-
rail and square newels. Cyma-moulded axial beam in cellar at front.
Possibly other surviving internal features concealed. Undercroft below
rear wing of No. 27. C15 with a short section of later vaulting to the
east. Brick. Two bays of quadripartite vaulting with chamfered ribs
and a lighting niche in the north wall opposite a blocked side chamber.
The distance of the undercroft from the street line and the junction
between the present west wall of the undercroft and the vaulting (west
bay truncated) suggests that it was originally four bays. The two
western bays were probably demolished when the present circa 1700 street
range was constructed. The undercroft is one of an important group of
medieval undercrofts within the city walls.
