Listing Text


672-1/5/148 (North side)
11/10/72 Nos.16 & 17
including outbuildings adjoining No
17 at rear


House, divided into 2, including outbuildings adjoining No 17.
Early C17 or earlier origins, probably originally a farmhouse,
later a coaching house, recast as 2 houses in the early C18
(documentation in the possession of owner) and refronted in
the early C19. Stuccoed cob; slate roof; axial and 2 rear
lateral stacks with brick shafts.
Plan: Originally 3-room and through passage plan, higher end
to the left (east), in No 16. A short rear wing at right
angles to No 16 fronts onto Martin's Lane with a carriageway
leading to a yard at the rear. Exterior: 2 storeys.
Asymmetrical 3:2 window south front with regular fenestration.
No 16, to the left, has an early C19 front door with doorcase
to right of centre. Doorcase with pilasters with incised fret
decoration, flat porch hood with moulded cornice, recessed
panelled front door. To the right of the front door one ground
and one first floor tripartite sash, 12-pane in the centre,
4-pane in the outer lights. The left return of No 16 has a
probably late C18 16-pane first floor sash with a moulded
architrave over a wide carriageway. The cartway has boarded
spandrels and a pair of C19 boarded doors with a wicket in one
of them. The south front of No 17 is approximately
symmetrical. Recessed 6-panel door with the top panels
fielded; moulded doorcase with panelled reveals, shallow
consoles, a rectangular panel over the lintel and a moulded
cornice above the panel. Left hand windows, one to each floor,
early C19 16-pane sashes (these are sited in the bay of the
former through passage); right hand windows tripartite sashes
matching those on No 16. Impressively long rear wing consists
of former stables with stable doors and loft windows. Cob wall
beyond contains ventilation slits blocked with brick, which
was the wall of a (demolished) rope-making shop with a timber
structure above the cob wall with gable end louvres and
fittings for rope-twisting.
Interior: No 16 (not fully inspected) has an entrance into a
passage. Features of interest, C19 or possibly concealed and
earlier are likely to survive. No 17 includes the former
through passage, to left of the present front door which leads
into a passage entrance. C18 stair with a flat moulded
handrail rises from the rear with a blocked round-headed rear
stair window. Several early C18 2-panel doors survive with HL
hinges and moulded doorcases. First floor front right room
retains an early C18 timber chimney-piece with an eared
architrave. Roof: Apex not inspected but principal rafters
showing in the first floor rooms of No 17 suggest an A-frame
This house is one of the earliest surviving in the town, which
was largely destroyed by fire in 1743.It is notable for its
good early C19 front and unconverted outbuildings of interest.
