GV II

Terraced houses with shops, now offices. C16 cellars; no 47 of probably early C18 date and no 48 of late C18. Brick set in Flemish bond, roof of slate. No 47 of three storeys, no 48 of four, no 47 of three-window range, no 48 of two. No 47 has late C19 shop front with dentil cornice and fascia stops to ground floor; upper windows segmental-arched with sashes of original design; stuccoed panel to parapet; right-hand return of four-window range with similar fenestration and C20 shutters set within late C19 architraves with dentil cornice. No 48 has early C20 shop front with glazing bars and panelled door with overlight to ground floor; upper windows flat-arched with heads of gauged red brick with sashes of original design to first floor (6/6) and second floor (8/8); parapet much rebuilt; stacks to party walls. INTERIOR. Three rows of mid-C16 brick-built and segmental-vaulted cellars beneath both houses, with Kentish ragstone to foundations, traces of extensive tile floor and two original connecting doorways, one with a four-centred arched head of chamfered stone voussoirs. No 47 reported as having panelling and original roof. The houses are situated north of the former priory church of St John of Jerusalem, and probably associated with one of the post-Dissolution (1540) houses.
