859-1/6/9 (North side)
House in row, with 2 shops. C17 or earlier fabric with
mid/late C18 front. Timber-framing, but rendered front, tile
roof, brick stack. The small scale of this building, and the
very steep roof to front range parallel to street and behind a
high parapet, suggests an early building.
2 storeys, 2-windowed. Small square 2-light C19 casements with
horizontal bars. Ground floor has deep-set off-central door,
and flanking shop fronts; to the left of the door is a
substantial jetty bracket. Eaves stack to the back left, on a
long swept-down roof-slope containing a 2-light gabled dormer.
To right is a lofty gable stack.
The right half of the property has a long wing in painted
brick with tile roof, but with a large structural post built
in at the centre, and with large plate exposed externally.
Various early casements, including a C18 gabled dormer window.
At the outer gable is a large square stack. A lower extension
has a 2-light C19 dormer, with at the ground floor a 12-pane
fixed C18 light, and a C19 part-glazed door.
INTERIOR: ground floors only were accessible for inspection.
To left the shop has a deep bressumer beam to a corner post,
corresponding to the jetty post in the entry. The joists are
early. In the right half the front shop has a large transverse
beam, and a large boxed beam at the front bressumer position.
The middle room has a further beam on wall posts, and the rear
room a large chamfered beam.
