SX874510 FOSS STREET 673-1/8/134 (West side) No.5

GV II

Shop with house above. Probably late C18, possible older origins, some late C19 and C20 modernisation. Mixed construction; stone rubble with plastered timber-framed front; right end stack with tall rendered chimneyshaft and old pots; slate roof. PLAN: One room wide and 2 rooms deep with passage to left. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys; 2-window range. Plaster front lightly blocked out as ashlar. Late C19 timber shop front with minor C20 alterations, 2 plate-glass lights divided by a slender central glazing bar with doorway to left containing double bottom-panelled glazed doors under plain overlight. House doorway, recessed to left, contains 6-panel door also under plain overlight. Plain fascia. Sash windows without glazing bars. Plain eaves to roof between taller adjoining buildings. INTERIOR: Exposed joinery is C19, eg. stick-baluster stair and panelled doors. No exposed carpentry. The dropped levels of the ground and first floors suggest that the structure may be older than the C19. HISTORY: Foss Street follows the line of a medieval dyke which dammed a tidal creek and included a tidal mill. The mill pool was filled in and developed around 1820-30, although houses were built along the Foss from the C17 onwards.
