TL8564SW ABBEYGATE STREET 639-1/14/151 (South side) 16/10/95 No.55


Shop. Mid-C19 with core of c1600. White brick front, timber-framed core; shallow-pitched slate roof with wide eaves and mutule cornice. EXTERIOR: 4 storeys and cellar; 2 bays. 3 window range of late C19/early C20 sashes, all without glazing bars, deep reveals, stucco heads and stone sills. C20 shop front with plain fascia and recessed double doors. INTERIOR: the cellar is faced with large irregular stone blocks along the rear wall and has several shallow arched recesses; along the front wall are recesses with old brick arches. The heavy supporting main beam is chamfered and rests on stone blocks. On the ground storey a timber ceiling is exposed: the main cross-beams have been hacked back, plain, flat, closely-spaced joists. No timbers survive above ground storey level. The roof was raised in the C19 when the brick front was added. This building is surrounded on its west side and rear by No.56 (qv), and although it has been a separate property for nearly 2 centuries it appears structurally to have formed part of No.56 initially.
