1. 5255 MARKET PLACE (East Side) Nos 8 & 9 Nos l0 to 12 (consec) TL 1829 SW 1/61 13.4.51. II* GV

2. C15. The West range of a building which surrounded all four sides of a courtyard; this range alone survives in its original form, although some necessary alterations were made to suit it to its present use as a shop. Part of the Eastern side, re-built In C17, survived also; but the rest has vanished. This range is of timber construction in 2 storeys, below steep tiled roofs with a central cross-gable over-hanging the original gateway (now glazed over as part of the shop) on broad beam ends. The skeleton timber construction has been carefully preserved through most of the Interior, and can be well seen in the facade of the gateway with plaster in-filling. Ground floor is adapted as a shop-front without undue violation of the general appearance of the building; upper floor 7 windows of which the northern five are leaded casements, the southern 2 late C18 or early C19 sashes. 2 gabled dormers. Front recently curtailed on right, demolishing much of No 12. RCHM page 122; VCH page 4.

All listed buildings in Market Place form a group.
