TL8564SE EASTGATE STREET 639-1/8/332 (North side) 12/07/72 No.12


House, formerly with a shop. C16, with early C18 alterations and an early C19 front. Timber-framed and roughcast-rendered. Plaintiled roof. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attics; frame in 4 bays. 3 window range: 9-pane sashes in flush cased frames. On the ground storey, 2 fixed early C19 6-pane shop windows flank a C20 window in place of the former shop door. Entrance door at one end with 6 flush panels, the top 2 glazed; wood surround with a lead-covered gabled C19 hood on shaped brackets. INTERIOR: the basic frame is substantial, with heavy chamfered cross-beams, posts with long jowls and wide studding exposed along the east wall. Later partitions are much more flimsy with straight braces bisecting narrow studs. The chimney-stack, with an open fireplace and damaged timber lintel on its east side, has no structural chimney bay and may replace a smoke-bay. To the east of the stack a room in 2 long bays was subsequently divided into 2; the dividing partition now has its studding exposed and the infill removed. A later partition in the room above has been similarly treated. Joists to the ground-storey rooms are set on edge, some clearly replacements. The upper ceilings appear to be insertions. Attics boarded; roof in 6 bays with only cambered collars exposed.
