673-1/8/225 (West side)
Shop, now restaurant, with house above. Between 1889-1893,
probably by EH Back for CR Cranford. Mixed construction; stone
rubble with brick and Bathstone dressings and timber-framed
show front; stacks in the party walls with brick
chimneyshafts; flat roof.
PLAN: Double-depth, 2 rooms wide with entrance lobby and
stairs to left.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys; symmetrical 2-window range. Ornamental
show front in a distinctive Elizabethan style. Timber-framed
with jettied floors, projecting bays, balustraded balconies.
Ground-floor left is the house doorway; painted stone with a
moulded surround. Shop front is largely original with central
recessed doorway. Symmetrical 2-window front above. Balconies
across both floors. Second-floor balcony is 4 bays in same
style as those next door at No.1 (qv). First-floor balcony
interrupted by projecting bay windows in different style and
may be secondary. Bays contain ovolo-moulded 2-light
mullion-and-transom windows, larger lower lights containing
original horned sashes without glazing bars, surrounded by
Jacobean-style pargetting which includes the initials RC,
thought to belong to CR Cranford. Similar windows on the
second floor with glazed doors alongside onto the balcony.
Timber moulded cornice above. Framing creates narrow panels
which are slate-hung; full-width slates with toothed edges,
alternately grey and purple.
INTERIOR: Contains original detail including the staircase
and, at ground-floor level, papier-mache frieze.
