3/94 No.101 and Young's Stores (formerly listed as 9.12.55 Nos. 101 and 103)

- II

House and shop. Facade of late C18 and C19. A complex building with a core of several dates including a low early C18 range to the street, and a tall mid/late C16 cross-wing to left; both of 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered; the main range has a parapet masking a shallow-pitched slated front roof slope. The remaining roofs are plaintiled. An internal chimney of red brick. Mid C19 small-pane sashes. A fine wide late C18 bow-fronted shop window with small panes, with a deeply-recessed doorway at the centre: a pair of half-glazed panelled doors with Tuscan columns supporting a flat entablature. The cornice continues over the shop windows on either side, and at each end are slender pilasters. A late C18 6-panelled entrance door to No.101, the upper pair of panels glazed. The left-hand parlour block has some good mid C16 features: arch-braced close-studding and moulded ceiling beams in the chamber above; the studwork retains its original herringbone bricknogging. Now within the roofspace is an area of wall-painting on plaster, simulating the bricknogging beneath in bright red with fine white joints, and one square panel with a painted foliate design is included. The painting is early, and perhaps original. Coupled-rafter roof. Behind is a lower wing of earlier C16 or possibly C15, with evidence for a crownpost roof, now rebuilt; a C17 window lights a staircase tower, and a rare twin early C18 window has some bullseye glass in square panes with thick glazing bars. A long rear wing to right is mainly of C19 red brick but may have an earlier core. In continuous use as a grocer's shop since at least 1784, when known as John Woodward, Grocer and Draper.
