TL8563NW WHITING STREET 639-1/15/709 (East side) 12/07/72 No.48 Rose and Crown Public House


Includes: Nos.50, 51 AND 52 Rose and Crown Public House WESTGATE STREET. Public house. C17 with C19 exterior and probably C15 core. Timber-framed, encased in C19 red brick on the ground storey and faced in alternate bands of plain and ornamental tiles on the upper storey. Plaintiled roofs. EXTERIOR: part 2 storeys, part 2 storeys and attics; cellar to part. On a corner site with a return front to Westgate Street.

In 2 ranges: a wide gable at the south-east corner has fluted bargeboards and a hanging finial. Random fenestration: various sash windows to the ground storey, those on the Whiting Street frontage 12-pane; all in flush cased frames. Various small-paned casement windows to the upper storey. One gabled dormer facing Whiting Street and one facing Westgate Street with fluted barge boards and ornate ridge tiles: both have small-paned 2-light casement windows. 4 doors: that on Whiting Street with a plain wood surround and flat pediment. INTERIOR: a small completely modernised cellar below the Whiting Street range. No.52 Westgate Street is a separate derelict one bay cottage with a section of plain unchamfered flat C16 joists and one main beam exposed on the ground storey and some rafters visible above: clasped purlin roof. The remainder of the Westgate range has clear indications of heightening in the C17, with the remains of joists and one tie-beam at a lower level. Evidence that the whole frame has been raised continues into the Whiting Street range, where the lower original wallplate is visible and main posts have had tie-beams removed. Later main posts have jowled heads and the remains of long arched braces. On the ground storey of the Whiting Street range the main beams are very heavy, some encased. Roofs inaccessible. Too little of the framing is exposed for any clear analysis, but each range may have contained an open hall initially.
