03/05/72 Nos.35 AND 36
including gateway adjoining to north
(Formerly Listed as:
and Nos 34-37 (consec))
Pair of houses. Mid C19, possibly older. Mixed construction;
part stone rubble, part timber-framed, front plastered and
right (north) side slate-hung above ground floor; end stacks
with rendered chimneyshaft and old pots; hipped slate roof.
PLAN: Pair of contemporary modest houses, each one room wide
and one room deep.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys with attics and lower rear service blocks.
Symmetrical 3-window plastered front. Paired central doorways
under moulded floating cornice. Both doorways have similar mid
C19 four-panel doors, the top panels now glazed, the bottom
panels with vertical mouldings. With the exception of a single
replacement 4-pane sash, all the windows, including the front
and side windows of the 2 first-floor canted bays and the
flat-roofed front dormers, are horned 12-pane sashes. Deep
eaves with plastered soffit carried in shaped timber brackets.
Right side wall jetties at first-floor level oversailing the
side passage. The wall is slate-hung above and contains a
small 12-pane sash to second-floor rear. Flat-roofed dormer
above has a 4/8-pane sash.
INTERIOR: Only first-floor room of No.36 available for
inspection and, besides the staircase, a straight flight
rising from small entrance lobby, all that shows is
essentially the result of C20 modernisation. Rear service
block at this level open to roof of king post trusses of
slender scantling. C19 (and possibly earlier) joinery and
other detail may survive elsewhere.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: Side passage to right (north) has a mid
C19 gate fixed to the side wall of No.35 close to the front.
It is wooden with boarded lower panel and open top panel
containing iron spear-headed rails, alternately low (just
protruding from the middle rail) and tall (extending through
the top rail).
