ROCHESTER HIGH STREET
TQ 7468 NW
7/64 No 82 with No 82A
(Philip Lodge) to
24.10.50 rear
GV II*
House, now with shop (to High Street) with large house to rear
(No 82A). Late C18 front range added on to and in part
incorporating the end portion of an early C16 house,
substantially re-modelled in C17. Brick frontage; timber-framed
to rear with brick underpinning, cladding and stacks. Kent-tile
roofs throughout. The two components will be described
separately. Front (No 82) forms part of a single-phase
development which includes Nos 78 and 80 (qv): 3 window, 3 storey
range with dormered attic in mansard roof. Upper floors with 4
or 6-pane sash windows; parapet and brick cornice continuous with
Nos 78 and 80. Two flat roofed dormers. Shop window retains
some c.1900 features. For interior features see below. Note:
the front elevation should be considered in conjunction with Nos
78 and 80.

No 82A: a large 3-room, cross-passage house with the original
services to the S (away from the street); the hall is of one bay
with closed partitions to both ends and it seems unlikely that
it was ever open to the roof. The whole building was modernised
in the C17 when the upper rooms were heightened by the addition
of front (W) gables; also added, a porch and rear stairs, and a
large external rear stack to the upgraded service end. Exterior:
the principal front faces W and its main elements are C17. To
the left of the porch (to the cross passage), a 2 window range,
gabled, with very shallow jetties to 1st floor and attic with
moulded jetty beams. 1st floor 4 light casement windows with
leaded panes and some original iron fittings, that to the left
with ovolo moulded surround. Ground floor with a 3-light
Yorkshire sash, and a 16-pane hornless sash window. Gabled 2
storey porch, brick below with round-headed doorway and 2-light
casement window above. To the right, also gabled, with
projecting storeyed gabled bay with Venetian window above (much
original ironwork and some early leading) with two demi-figures
(originally caryatids and not in situ). A pair of 12-pane
hornless sash windows to ground floor. Plain brick return to
right. Rear: massive external stack, part gabled. Interior:
good stair, off-centre to rear of hall, with bulbous turned
balusters, dentilled rail, and one newel still with foliated
finial. C17 panelling to right-hand room; fireplace of c.1910.
The room above (the principal C17 bedroom) with contemporary
fireplace. The Venetian window, carefully repaired, with C17
latches, joinery and ironwork. Some of the original framing is
visible with heavily jowelled posts. Evidence of mortices
confirms that the lower-end hall partition was closed; that to
the higher end is closed throughout. Roof space not accessible.
Within No 82 High Street is a lateral stone fireplace with 4-
centred hollow chamfered surround; one ceiling beam with quarter
circle moulding.
