GV II

House at junction of two principal streets, with shop. Early C19 facade, some C18 interior detail. Flemish bond brickwork, slate roof, brick stacks. A tall building with a splayed corner, and parapet cropped close to third-floor window heads; the property links the last building in the main run in High Street with the first in Barton Street. 4 storeys, 1:1:1-windowed. 12-pane (horizontal) sash at third floor, above 16-pane at first and second floors, all to brick voussoirs and central fluted keystone with cornice. C20 plate-glass shop front to each facet, with deep-set doors on splay front. A large stone panel inscribed 'Frisby's' has replaced the central first-floor window. INTERIOR, which links with No.1, Barton Street (qv), is very simple, with remnants of contemporary stick-baluster staircases, and 2 blocked fireplaces, one of these with eared architrave. This building is a key element in the townscape at the junction of the three main streets, The Cross; the top courses of the walling, just below the parapet, are a rebuilding. A 1960 photograph in the NMR shows the first-floor splay to have a glazing-bar sash where the inscribed panel is located. (Photograph in National Monuments Record: 1960-).
