TL8563NW WHITING STREET 639-1/15/700 (East side) 07/08/52 No.18 (Formerly Listed as: WHITING STREET (East side) Nos.17A AND 18)


House; part of the upper storeys now divided off as a separate flat. C16/C17 with early C19 alterations. Timber-framed and roughcast rendered; slate roof with a wide plain eaves cornice. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar (part of which is accessible only from No.19 (qv)). 2 window range: 16-pane sashes to the 1st storey, 12-pane to the 2nd storey and a single vertical glazing-bar to the ground storey, all in cased frames. A 6-panel door with the top panels glazed has a moulded wood architrave and a flat cornice. A section of applied mock timbering to the centre of the upper storeys. A 2-storey early C19 rear extension is rendered externally and the shallow-pitched roof has concrete single roman tiles. INTERIOR: a deep cellar below the northern half of the building is a continuation of that accessible only from No.19.

Much reused stone in 3 of the walls; ceiling with a large main beam and narrow early C19 joists. The front ground-storey room has substantial cross-beams exposed in the ceiling, one with mortices for a former partition, which implies that the frame continued into No.19 initially. A plain C19 stair has stick balusters.
