TL8564SW BUTTERMARKET 639-1/14/220 (East side) 12/07/72 Nos.27, 27A AND 27B (Formerly Listed as: BUTTERMARKET (East side) No.27)


House and shop, now 2 shops with offices above. Early C19 front; C16 and C17 core. Timber-framed and rendered; slate roof. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. 5 window range: small-paned sashes in flush cased frames with glazing-bars to the upper sashes only. All windows have wood architraves and pediments on console brackets. The 4 1st storey windows open on to wrought-iron balconies. 2 C20 shop fronts on the ground storey. A long timber-framed rear range in at least 5 bays, at right angles to the front, is approached from High Baxter Street. This was formerly the Half Moon Inn. It is now largely surrounded by C20 extensions, but part of the jetty along the south side is still visible with the joist-ends exposed. Further extensions, including one with an early C19 mansard roof, make the rear very complex. INTERIOR: a 2-cell front range with internal chimney-stack has the timbers partly exposed on the 1st storey. The room to the left has a curious fireplace in Adam style augmented by a later overmantel. In the room to the right the main beam has shallow roll-mouldings. The top storey is a C19 addition. The ground storey of the jettied rear range is entered through No.27A and the upper storey from the rear of No.27. Part of the timbers of the ground-storey ceiling are exposed, with hollow and roll-mouldings to the main beams and cornice and roll-mouldings to the joists. On the upper storey, one chamfered and cambered tie-beam and a main post with a long arched brace; the remainder of the frame covered. The roof is a C20 replacement.
