TL8564SW ABBEYGATE STREET 639-1/14/148 (South side) 12/07/72 No.49

GV II*

Shop with living accommodation above. Early C17 and mid C19. EXTERIOR: 3-storey painted brick front with slate roof and a 2-storey 5-bay timber-framed and rendered rear range with plaintiled roof. 3 window range to front, all small-paned sashes with stucco reveals and architraves; dentilled cornices and a segmental pediment on console brackets above the first storey windows. A C20 shop front with recessed central entry to the ground storey. A side door on the west leads into a passage running beside the long L-shaped and jettied rear range. This has a high moulded wooden cornice and had originally a continuous row of slightly projecting 6-light mullion-and-transom windows, supported on small moulded stop brackets, along the whole upper storey. Only 3 of these 6-light windows now survive, some with mullions removed; other original openings have been blocked, and there is one replacement small-paned sash window. On the ground storey, a range of similar but more heavily moulded mullion-and-transom windows are divided into 3 groups of 3 lights below a moulded fascia covering the joist-ends of the jetty. To the north of these windows are 2 small-paned sashes of c1700 with thick ovolo-moulded glazing-bars. INTERIOR: the cellar below the western half of the front has plastered rubble walls which may be medieval; arches of Tudor brick along the west wall; in the east wall, a projecting stone like a corbel is set low in the wall, with a small pointed-headed niche nearby. The rear range, in which there is no evidence for original partitions, has ovolo-moulded main beams on both storeys, trimmers with stepped stops, and covered joists. Roofs not readily accessible.
