TL8563NW WESTGATE STREET 639-1/15/677 (North side) 12/07/72 Nos.53 AND 54


A pair of cottages. C18, extended in the early C19. Timber-framed; red brick to lower wall of east gable; roughcast rendered; plaintiled roof; gable and chimney-stacks. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attics; gable end chimney-stacks. 2 window range: small-paned 2-light casements to the 1st storey and sashes to the ground storey, No.53 12-pane, No.54 with plain glass, both in flush cased frames. 2 gabled dormers with 2-light single bar casement windows. 2 central entrance doors, boarded. The 2-storey rear extension has a lean-to roof which runs into the slope of the main roof. INTERIOR: no cellars. The 2 cottages have a matching layout, initially with a single living-room in the front and a walk-in larder and corner stair behind. The C19 extension enlarged the larder area into a room and the original rear wall was removed. The infill between the studding of the partition wall has now been removed in each cottage to make one larger room. The red brick chimney-stacks each have reinstated open hearths with timber lintels, in No.54 with a marked camber. Many re-used timbers in both cottages and very light framing. Newel stair beside each stack. On the west, No.53 is butted up against the adjoining house and has a section of plastered external wall with comb-pargeting backing on the stair. All roof timbers covered: the original roof of No.54 was destroyed by fire in 1982.
