SY 6990 7/227

late C16 or early Cl7. Stucco, probably over timber-frame. Hipped slate roof.
3 storeys. Moulded wooden eaves conice. 1 cased sash with glazing bars on 2nd
floor. 1 canted oriel with moulded cornice and sashes with glazing bars on

bars and fanlight with glazing bars.
Ground floor interior has ceiling taken on a grid of deeply moulded joists (4
orders of moulding to those in front, 1 convex and 1 concave to those behind).
For the front part c.f. the oriel ceiling in Abbot's Hall, Milton Abbas (1498)
or contemporary church ceilings in Dorset (eg Holwell, Puddletown, Hazelbury
Drian). although more elaborate, these examples may help to date No 26 High
East Street. Nearer to hand are the ceilings of the north and south chapels
in St Peter's Church, High West Street.
All Saint's Church and Nos 21 to 26 (consec) form a group with No 1 Cornhill
