944 HIGH STREET
(North East Side)
No 11 (The Guildhall)
TR 1457 NE 4/62A 3.12.49.
The exterior of this building is entirely modern but within and beneath are
older remains. In the basement is a vault, now much mutilated of about 1200.
Above is a hall of 6 bays much modernized inside and fitted up as a courtroom.
The 2 bays nearest to the High Street are apparently a later addition, perhaps
of the late C17. The main hall with its roof with moulded tie-beams and
wall plates is probably of the C14-15. The side facing Guildhall Street
was faced with an ornamental brickwork facade in 1700. It was entirely remodelled
and covered with a cement rendering in 1904. The main walls appear to be
flint and chalk rubble in origin. The 2 additional bays have only a flimsy
timber-framed wall on the west. The building is scheduled as an AM.
Nos 11 to 15 (consec) form a group.
