TL8564SW BRENTGOVEL STREET 639-1/7/200 (North side) The Grapes Public House


Includes: The Grapes Public House ST ANDREW'S STREET NORTH. Public house. Early to mid C19. White brick and slates. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellars; on a corner site with a return front to St Andrew's Street. A plain parapet with stone copings and a heavy stucco cornice. Raised stucco bands between the 1st and 2nd storey windows. A cast-iron hanging inn sign projects from the 1st storey front. 3 window range to Brentgovel Street: 12-pane sashes to the 1st and 2nd storeys, all in cased frames with deep reveals and flat gauged arches. Low cast-iron railings remain across some sills. 2 tripartite sash windows to the ground storey have 16-pane central lights and diminished 4-pane side lights. A segmental-arched brick surround to the doorway; door with 2 leaves and a low segmental-arched fanlight with spoke glazing-bars. The slightly recessed quadrant corner has a blocked window to the 2nd storey, a 16-pane sash to the 1st storey and a C20 canted bay to the ground storey with 3 12-pane sash windows. On the St Andrew's Street frontage a single sash window to each of the upper storeys in the same style as the Brentgovel Street front and a small door with a flat arch over. Adjoining on the north, a 2-storey block with a canted corner has 2 large 2-light small-paned casement windows to the upper storey with semicircular heads and radiating glazing-bars. A similar arched opening on the corner was blocked and contains a later large-paned sash window; another blocked window opening on the ground storey. One tripartite sash on the ground storey and a wide carriage entrance with double doors: this has an elliptical brick arch with a raised keystone bearing the date 1837 and the letters TB. Adjoining this part of the complex is a timber-framed rear range at right angles to the street, apparently originally jettied, but later converted to stabling on the ground storey with the upper storey now supported on a series of brick arches facing into the inn yard. Extensive cellars below the building with walling in brick and flint.
