(East Side)

13/39 Nos. 2 and 4
(Aberdeen Houe)


House, formerly White Hart Inn, early C16, converted into two
shops in C19 or early C20. Originally an open hall with floor
and hearth inserted probably late C16 or early C17. The rear
range was added early in C17 and the front to the street was
remodelled in C19. Timber framed, plaster rendered with a
steeply pitched cement tile roof with ridge stack. Two
storeys. Three flush frame hung sashes of twelve panes each.
C20 gabled oriel window above carriageway at right hand. c.1840
doorcase of fluted pilasters with dentil cornice. Late C19 or
early C20 architraves to two shop fronts. Rear range, c.1630,
also timber framed and plaster rendered. Three bays and
narrower stairbay and two storeys and attic. Later fenestration
but original doorcase and door with iron fittings. Interior.
Little of the original framing is visible, but three bays of the
original crown-post roof remain intact. One crown-post is smoke
blackened, has a plain unmoulded head and bracing from the post
to the collar purlin. Two other crown-posts have a single brace
to the collar purlin and are not smoke blackened. There is a
vacant mortice in the last crown-post at the left hand
indicating that the building originally extended to the north
west. Rafters are halved and pegged at the apex and joined by
collars also halved and pegged. The rear range has a newel
staircase and two inglenook hearths.
