TL8564SW ABBEYGATE STREET 639-1/14/123 (North side) 07/08/52 No.11


Former house and warehouse, now shop premises with store rooms above. Early C17, C18 and C19. Timber-framed and rendered; plaintiles. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with cellars and attics. 3 projecting gables along the facade have a plastered coving, wooden cornice and plain C19 bargeboards. A 2-light casement window with diminished side-lights to each gable, and a range of 5 similar but larger C18 casement windows to the upper storey. A fine early C19 shop front to the ground storey: the 6 windows, divided by panelled pilasters, have rounded heads and intersecting glazing bars in Gothick style. A wooden fascia above with dentil cornice. A central C20 shop door and a 6-panelled door on the right with panelled reveals. INTERIOR: the cellar is extensive and very high, the walls entirely lined with coursed ashlar blocks, thought to be re-used. In the east wall a narrow rectangular recess is supported by a short section of small rounded stone column, and on the wall above are the remains of a stone corbel. 2 stone blocks on the floor, set in line, have empty mortices, probably for timber posts. The ground storey is without original features; upper storey with boxed-in main beams. Original rear wall removed, other walls covered in C19 vertical boarding. The attic storey appears to be a complete early C18 addition: framing with long primary braces, bisected studs; blocked window openings along rear wall, clasped purlin roof with ridge.
