SY6778NE MAIDEN STREET 873-1/23/222 (West side) 14/06/74 No.40A RAFA Club (Formerly Listed as: MAIDEN STREET (West side) Royal Naval Patrol HQ) (Formerly Listed as: ST EDMUND STREET (South side) No.1)


Club and commercial premises. C17, but late C19 fenestration. Portland stone ashlar, slate roof. PLAN: part of a larger block of development extending to the Quay, and the Duke of Cornwall in St Edmund Street (qv). At N end, where the property returns to St Edmund Street, are high coped gables facing E and N. Ground floor incorporates public conveniences, and there is no entrance to the principal property from St Edmund Street. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attic; a unit separately occupied on the ground floor, immediately adjoining the Ship, has a small 2-light raking dormer above 2 and 4-light casements in plain reveals. At the ground floor a doorway to the Ship intrudes, then there is a wide 6-panel door in a flat basket-handle arch, and a large 4-light casement as above. To the right is a small 2-light flush stone-mullioned casement over a C20 door under label course. The gable has 2-light above 3-light early mullioned casements with labels, and at the ground floor 3 small square lights and a further C20 door with label. A C17 cannon ball remains embedded in the gable masonry to the left of the casement. The return to St Edmund Street has a similar gable, with 2 over 3-light, the latter a C20 facsimile; to its right is a 2-light with, all these with label courses. Ground floor has a central doorway and shallow flanking lights, all of the late C20. The gables have saddle-back copings and haunched and scrolled kneelers; the N gable is less wide, springing at a higher level than the other. This section has a plinth with moulded offset. INTERIOR: retains nothing visible from the early fabric; the roof was not inspected. This building was part of a C17 development, with the

adjoining Ship Inn (qv) and Duke of Cornwall (qv) and is important as part of the street scene and in retaining C17 fabric, now relatively scarce in the town. The loss of interior detail is to be regretted. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 349).
