TL 51 SW SHEERING THE STREET, (North Side) 3/4 Hawthorns


Lobby-entrance house, C17, extended in C18 and C19. Timber framed, roughcast rendered, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays aligned approx. NE-SW with axial chimney stack in middle bay, forming a lobby-entrance, C17. Rear chimney lean-to extension, C18. Extended to NE in early C19 with contemporary lean-to at rear and double chimney stack to form a separate cottage. Main house divided into 2 cottages about the same time, subsequently re-combined.

2 storeys. Ground-floor, one plain boarded door, one glazed door, 3 C19 cast iron casement windows. First floor, 3 C19 cast iron casement windows. Roof half-hipped at both ends. Axial beams in both ground floor rooms of original house, plain chamfered with lamb's tongue stops, joists plastered to soffits.

Roof altered. An interesting feature of this house is that the combed designs in the plaster of the NE wall of the original building and its rear extension are still present as internal surfaces in the extension, enclosed since the early C19, a rare survival.
