History

Originally a single 3-bay house, probably of the early C19 and shown on the 1834 town plan. It was divided into 2 properties in the third quarter of the C19 and is shown as such on the 1890 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

Belongs to a group of 7-9 High Street.

Late Georgian house, divided into 2 properties and partly converted to commercial use. Scribed render walls, renewed slate roof and roughcast end stacks. 3 storey, 3 bays of the paired central doorways, No 9 has a fielded-panel door with plain overlight, No 7 has a replaced door beneath plain overlight, and pilaster strips with modern pediment. No 9 has a 4-pane sash window to the R in the lower storey. No 7 has a late C20 shop window to the L framed by panelled pilasters and fascia. Above, the central bay has blind windows, with 4-pane horned sash windows in both the middle and upper storeys.

The rear of No 9 is rubble stone with sash windows, while No 7 is rendered with full-height projection and attic dormer.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as an early C 19 building, which became a pair of later C 19 homes, retaining simple Georgian character, and contributing to the historic integrity of the walled town.
