REDRUTH FORE STREET SW 64 SE (north side) 11/265 Nos.9 and 10 GV II Pair of shops. c.1900, altered. Terracotta on brick, with roof of slate and some copper cladding. U-shaped plan composed of a single and a double unit separated by a through-passage, with rear wings to both parts. Two and a half storeys, in Baroque style above ground floor; the shop fronts are both double fronted, and the windows and doors are framed by very slender columns but No. 9 is narrower and they differ in detail: in No.9 the columns are free-standing and have fluted shafts and foliated caps, while at No.10 the columns are integral and have carved caps and carved brackets above; No.9 has a very deep fascia arched over a modern semicircular canopy to the door, and a prominent sun-blind cornice, and No.10 has a modern sloped fascia board covering the top. Between the shops, the entrance to the passage has a terracotta surround with brattished cornice and blind 2- light mullioned overlight. The upper floors are of 3 wide bays (the first hinged round the left corner) and of elaborate design in red and yellow terracotta, with panelled pilasters between, decorated bands above and below, and a prominent moulded cornice carried round. The left corner is formed by a hinged 3-light window with cylindrical glazing to the centre light, and above the cornice an octagonal lantern with ogival copper-clad cap surmounted by an elaborate finial. The 2nd and 3rd bays each have a large semicircular tripartite window with keystone, the cornice above this decorated with a small swan-neck pediment, and in the attic storey a 2- light dormer with cornice and pediment. All the windows have recessed glazing and moulded surrounds.
