TL8564SW RISBYGATE STREET 639-1/7/538 (North side) 07/08/52 Nos.98A, 99 AND 100 (Formerly Listed as: RISBYGATE STREET (North side) No.100)


A house and 2 cottages, later a house and workshop in one occupation; now empty. Early C19 with a C17 core. Part painted brick; part render over a timber frame; slate roofs. EXTERIOR: Nos 98A and 99 are 2-storey; No.100, 3-storey. An internal chimney-stack between Nos 98A and 99, which have roofs on slightly different levels. No.98A has a half-glazed door to the upper storey and No.99 has 2 sash windows without glazing bars in shallow reveals. No.100 has a painted brick front and rendered sides; a bulge in the render on the east gable above 1st floor level indicates that the top storey is a later addition. The roof has a wide overhang and a paired modillion eaves cornice. 3 window range: the 1st storey with a central 12-pane sash in shallow reveals flanked by 2 segmental tripartite bays with 12-pane central sashes and diminished side lights. These bays are flat-roofed and may originally have extended to ground storey level. The present ground storey of all 3 sections is taken up by workshops. At the rear of No.100 a wing linked to the front by a large offset red brick chimney-stack. INTERIOR: the ground storey is denuded of any historic features. On the 1st storey front of No.100 ovolo- moulded cross-beams to the ceiling, set slightly skew. The main post at the front has been removed. Shutters with sunk panels to the windows. In the eastern half of the rear a 2-bay room on the 1st storey with an ovolo-moulded main beam and good, but widely spaced, joists. An early C19 stair to the added top storey of the front has stick balusters, a ramped handrail and moulded newels. Roofs in this part are hidden, apart from one small late section. At the rear of Nos 98A and 99 a wing at right-angles to the front contains 2 bays of late C17 timber-framing. Widely-spaced studs exposed on upper storey and a large main beam, possibly re-used, although it fits well. Roof much replaced, but with the remains of clasped purlins; rafters with ridge and saddles.
