GV II

Two houses in row. Late C15 or C16. Braced panel framing with plaster or brick fill, some brickwork, tile roofs, brick stacks. Parallel-plan front range with side entries: a pair of small-scale houses, probably of one build, although the roof surface is broken at the party wall. Each property is over an alley, and was formerly jettied but has been underbuilt. No.56 has Hamerton Court, to the left, and No.57 has Locks Court to the right; each has a steep-gabled rear timber-framed wing. No.56 of 2 storeys and attic, 2-windowed, with a single 2-light raking dormer above two 2-light casements with mullion and moulded architraves at first floor in replica framing. Late C19 shop front with glazed C19 door, under a plain fascia, and to the left, set back, a plank door to the throughway, Hamerton Court. This has, to the left, a braced framed wall, including 2 large posts, one of these jowelled. There is a stack and a large dormer window to the rear wing; the dormer faces toward No.57. No.57 of 2 storeys and attic, 1-windowed; a 2-light casement in replica framing above a late C19 shop front with a set-back glazed door to the right, under a shallow transom-light. The formerly jettied upper floor is carried over Locks Court to the right, which has braced framing and a post with bracket to jetty at the front. The gabled rear wing is similar to that of 56 adjoining. INTERIOR of 56 is more completely retained than 57. No.56 has a C20 staircase leading to a first-floor front room with a central cambered beam carried on a post in the front wall. In the gabled wing the original end gable has propped principals and a single purlin. One of the main ties is severely cut through for a door-head, and there is a large north-facing 3-light casement, raised partly into a dormer. On the south roof slope the purlin rises at an angle. An early staircase may be concealed in the central area between the two properties, but it was not possible to investigate this further. In 57, first-floor front is a very heavy cambered tie-beam in the party wall. In both properties the ceiling pitches are very low. There are several C19 plank doors remaining.
