TQ 7468 NW
Nos 69 and 71
7/120
(Lloyds Bank)
24.10.50
GV II
Bank, formerly substantial town house. C17, with mid C18 front,
reorganised when converted to a bank in C20. Brown brick,
rendered to ground floor; Kent tile roof. Main range runs
parallel to street (ground floor arrangement altered in C20 when
Cl7 stair moved to rear); 3 short wings (with hipped roofs) to
rear. Front: 2 storeys; regular 6-window range. Parapet with
stone coping; brick cornice band. All upper windows with rubbed
brick flat arches and stone sills; hornless sashes, some
original, in reveals, 6-pane to top half-storey, 12-pane to 1st
floor. Ground floor carefully remodelled in C20 with 2 large
tripartite sash windows with glazing bars and a cash-point with
glazed overlight. Doorway to left with canopy on consols
brackets. Some good interior features: some late Cl7 large
fielded panels to ground floor; a more extensive series to 1st
floor. Late Cl7 (circa 1700) open well stairs (not in situ),
with 3 turned balusters to each stair (the centre one fluted)
with elaborate newels and moulded rail. A rear room contains
earlier Cl7 panelling (not in situ), each panel with a central
painted motif set in a formal surround. The discovery of this
painted panelling excited considerable interest, see Rev S W
Wheatley, 'A House in Rochester High Street, Numbered 69 and 71',
Archeologia Cantiana, XXXVIII (1926), 69-74.
