PRESTON, FRIARGATE (South West side), No.47 and attached buildings in rear courtyard

(Formerly listed as No.47 Barronfield Gallery and attached buildings in rear courtyard) II

House, now shop, with attached former dwellings in rear courtyard. Front range dated 1755 on rainwater head (but rebuilt), courtyard buildings early C19, altered (and now derelict). Front of modern common brick in stretcher bond, with sandstone dressings, slate roof; rear of red brick in English garden wall bond (4+1), mostly painted, with slate roofs. Double-depth front range, with narrow passage and courtyard to right, rear wing, range bridging passage, and pair of single-depth cottages along south side of courtyard. All 2 storeys, the rear cottages very low. At the front are a C19 shop-front surround, and the rainwater head, which has a moulded base and cornice, and a waisted hopper with raised lettering "IHM /1755". The long narrow through-passage beside the rear wing, continued as a tunnel under the rear range, is a rare survival of early C19 cellular development which formerly predominated in the main streets of the town, and the cottages, the only example known to have survived, are of one-up-one-down type, with a segmental-headed doorway to the right, a square segmental-headed window to the left and a small square window above; that to the right has very small partly-sunk kitchen-living room at ground floor. Included as good example of early C19 housing.
