859-1/2/284 (South East side)
04/03/52 Nos.1 AND 2
House in row, formerly two or three. Late C15 or early C16.
Heavy tension-braced large-panel timber-framing, painted brick
nogging; tile roof and brick stack. A long jettied front to
parallel-plan range with steep-pitched roof; small lower brick
wing to centre, back.
2 storeys and attic, 3-windowed. 2 wide-spaced small gabled
2-light dormers above 2:3:2-light late C18 or C19 casements
with horizontal bars at first floor. At ground floor are three
2-light casements with transoms. Far left is a plank door, and
near right end another, under a 4-centre-headed arched
overlight; the head cut from a single timber member. The 2
doors are on 2 very high sandstone steps. The main framework
rises from heavy cill on small stone plinth course, and at the
right hand end, adjoining No.15, Mill Street (qv), is a dragon
beam, suggesting a further jetty on the return in the original
building. Brackets help to carry the jetty, which has a
moulded bressumer. A large stack in C17 brickwork runs
laterally central to the ridge. At the back is one gabled
dormer with replacement window, and various lights in further
timber-framing. The wing has a gable stack.
INTERIOR not inspected. This is the best retained of this
important row of early timber-framed cottages, at a visually
important street corner opposite Abbey Mill (qv), and set back
behind the raised pavement (qv), to minimise flooding risk.
