1161 CHURCH WALK Guildhall TM 0242 3/3 26.4.50.



Latter part of Cl5 with later additions on east and west, a 3 storey wing on south-west and a long wing extending south. Frontage circa 80 ft.

The whole building is timber-framed and plastered, roofs tiled. The timber-framing is exposed on the north side of the main building and this is the most interesting and picturesque part. Each of the upper storeys projects on this north front on curved brackets with moulded capitals and shafts - the shafts on ground floor front are panelled and have traceried heads. Some of the timberwork and most of the window mullions have been renewed, but the westerly window of the 1st floor has remains of traceried heads. Interior includes open kingpost roof and moulded beams. The wing on east originally projected (upper storey) on both sides but has been underbuilt in brick; the east end is semi-octagonal. The wing on west has mainly C18 characteristics and probably was part of the old Grammar School.

The wing on south-west is of 3 storeys with projecting upper storey on south and the long wing extending south (used as a dormitory to the workhouse in C18) has ground floor brick facing on east with small panel and date 1780. NMR photos.

All the listed buildings in Church Walk form a group.
