TL8563NE ST MARY'S SQUARE 639-1/11/620 (North side) 07/08/52 No.2


House. C18, with C15 and C17 core. Red brick facing over a timber frame; rendered rear, partly jettied. Tiled roof with a wood modillion eaves cornice. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, cellar and attics. 3 window range: 3-light small-paned casements in plain reveals with finely gauged brick arches. 3 flat-headed dormers with 2-light single bar casement windows. A central 4-panel entrance door with horizontal upper and lower panels has a shallow rectangular fanlight and a narrow panelled architrave with a flat hood on console brackets. INTERIOR: cellar with walling of flint and reused stone blocks; one very worn reset corbel head. The interior is complex and much altered with many features concealed and confusion because false timbering has been introduced. In the room to the right of the entrance hall there is evidence for an underbuilt jetty supported on 2 cast-iron columns. The reconstructed fireplace on the back wall has a moulded beam inserted as a lintel. Exposed timbering in the entrance hall is mainly a later introduction, but the studded wall on the left appears to be part of the original frame. A half bay at the west end of the house is a fragment of No.1 St Mary's Square, demolished for road-widening. This has a section of very heavy ceiling joists for a jetty; the remaining framing in the room is hidden. On the 1st storey the 2 bays on the west have good exposed studding: in the end room, a shutter slide and the remains of a sill for a mullioned window. The fireplace surround has a C18 eared architrave. Roof with side purlins, mainly concealed. The rear range, running parallel to the front, has been partly reconstructed but seems in any case to be a rebuilding of a late medieval hall range linked with the rear cross-wing of No.3 St Mary's Square (qv). The ground storey ceiling is in 3 bays with the joists set on edge and aligned the wrong way in relation to the jetty. The open fireplace is in Tudor brick with chamfered jambs and a timber lintel. On the 1st storey, widely-spaced studding and an open fireplace with a shallow brick arch.
