return (to Queen Street) has on the ground floor one early C19 casement of 9
lights, with handmade glass, and one C20 casement, and on the first floor one
C20 casement. Jowled posts. Chamfered transverse beam lodged on girt at front,
supported on corner of stack at rear, joists plastered to the soffits. Groove
for sliding shutters in girt at front, rebate in girt at left end for shutter of
blocked unglazed window. Edge-halved and bridled scarf in rear wallplate; front
wallplate splinted and boxed. Wide wood-burning hearth with 0.33 metre jamb at
right, the left jamb widened with C18 brick to enclose an internal cupboard or
seat recess, with a small square external recess. Jointing for former doorhead
in rear wall of middle bay. The right bay has exposed plain joists of
horizontal section, with a blocked stair trap at the left side, and an
additional axial beam below it, supported on an iron strap at the right end. C18
wood-burning hearth. At the right end the weathered timbers of no. 22
(Stonehaven) (item 9/196, q.v.) are exposed, indicating that the studding of its
earlier end wall became the right end of no. 24. Smoke-blackened rafters over
left bays, the pegs at the apices unblackened, and carpenters' marks scrambled,
indicating that they have been re-set; C18 and C19 rafters above. Queen Street,
formerly called Back Lane, has always constricted the left end of the site,
resulting in this unusual plan. Part of RCHM 38.
