TL8564SW RISBYGATE STREET 639-1/7/526 (South side) 12/07/72 No.2 (Formerly Listed as: RISBYGATE STREET (South side) Nos.1 AND 2)


House, now offices. Early C16 with early C19 alterations and additions. C19 white brick front; timber-framed core. Slate roof with a wide paired modillion eaves soffit. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar. 2 window range: sashes in plain painted reveals, 12-pane to the 1st storey and 6-pane to the 2nd storey, all with flat gauged arches. The ground storey has a small late C20 shop window with a fascia board above and a 6-panel door with plain fanlight in a semicircular-headed brick surround. INTERIOR: cellar, mainly below the C19 rear extension, has a moulded C16 beam and a small section of medieval flint party wall on the east. The building itself comprises one bay of an early C16 timber-framed house. Main beams only are exposed: on the ground storey, almost certainly originally jettied, the beam has a complex double ogee moulding with a roll along the soffit. Along the rear wall, some reset C17 panelling. On the 1st storey, jowled main posts and a possible blocked original window in the rear wall; beams with double ogee mouldings. The 2nd storey may be original, although raised at the front. During the early C19 this building was altered in conjunction with No.1 Risbygate Street (qv) and No.65 St Andrew's Street South (qv). (Aitkens P: No.2 Risbygate Street: 1992-).
