HIGH STREET (North East side) Nos.10 AND 11


Pair of shops. Late C18, with probable earlier core. Remodelled for John Ashby by Thomas Farnolls Pritchard. Brick with plain tiled roof. 3 storeys, 4-window range, the windows grouped in pairs each side of blocked central window space. First and second floor windows do not align in No.10. Inserted shop fronts flanking central doorway. Shop fronts are late C19: fascias have been renewed but enriched architraves survive, and moulded shafts each side of central doorway to No.10. Recessed double doors, with ornate moulded woodwork forming shallow pediment and frieze. Upper windows are 2-pane sashes to first floor, with flat-arched gauged brick heads. Second-floor windows are 12-pane sashes in No.11, casements in No.10, all with flat-arched heads. Stone string course between the storeys. High parapet eaves concealing steeply pitched roof with suggests that this is the refronting of an earlier structure. Lead rainwater goods to left, with enriched head.
