SS826000 HIGH STREET 672-1/5/76 (North side) 11/10/72 Nos.62 & 63
House, now used as 2 houses and shop. Early C18, re-fronted and extended to rear in late C19. Cob, with Flemish bond brick added to the front elevation; thatched roof, replaced with slate on the front pitch; gabled thatch roof to rear left wing; late C19 rear wing with hipped slate roof. Left end and left lateral stacks with brick shafts. Plan: Overall U-plan. The C18 arrangement was a single depth main range with an early rear left wing at right angles to No 62. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front, 2 windows to No 62. The right end 1-window block is an addition with a lower roofline. The front is red brick with a band of cream brick below the eaves and a decorative band of stamped tiles on the front. No 62, to the left, has a late C19 doorway to the right with a recessed 4-panel front door with an overlight with margin panes. Doorcase has pilasters with incised fret decoration, a cornice on consoles and panelled reveals. To the left, the band of stamped tiles rises above a 16-pane C19 sash with a segmental arched head. 2 12-pane first floor sashes with segmental arched heads. No 63 has an identical doorcase adjacent to No 62. To its right, large, plate glass shop windows are canted in to a central glazed C20 shop door. The shop front has plain pilasters and a moulded cornice above the fascia. Interior: No 62 only inspected. Of the C18 phase a massive chamfered axial beam with runout stops survives in the rear wing, which also contains original parlour cupboards with fielded panels. First floor room front has an early C18 2-panel door with fielded panels. Roof of rear wing also C18, A-frame with through purlins. The collars have been removed but were formerly lapped and pegged onto the principal rafters. A C19 marble chimneypiece survives in the ground floor front room. This building certainly pre-dates the 1743 Crediton fire. Cob rear block probably built as a workshop - it was used as a slaughterhouse when a butcher's business was carried on in the shop.
