SO 3288 and BISHOP'S CASTLE C.P. WELSH STREET (north-
SO 3289 east side)
11/75 No. 2 and forecourt
House and railings. Late C17 with early-C19 refenestration. Painted coursed lime-
stone rubble with internal timber framed partition walls, and slate
roof with catslide over outshut to rear. Formerly T-plan (c.f. No. 4,
Welsh Street), now L-plan. 2 storeys and attic. Semi-integral end
stack to right with brick top stage, and brick ridge end-stack to left.
fill: square panels (internal). 3 bays, narrow projecting centre
bay breaking through eaves to form dormer gable with 2-light
casement; glazing bar sashes, 16-pane in outer bays; central half-
glazed door with pilastered surround and triangular pedimented hood.
Dovecote in gabled wing to rear. Interior: double staggered-purlin
roof with double queen-strut trusses and lath and plaster infil panels;
late-C17 L-shaped staircase with landing, closed string, turned balusters,
moulded grip rail square newel posts, and bottom newel post with
bulbous finial; splat balusters shaped to represent twisted balusters
on first floor and in short staircase to attic; C17 fireplaces. Despite
the early-C19 fenestration, this is still a very complete example of a
late-C17 house. This house extends behind Nos. 4 and 6, Welsh Street
(q.v.) which also incorporates part of it. Late C19 cast iron railed
enclosure at front.
