II

Shop and warehouse, now restaurant. Mid C18 reusing C17 roof structure, frontage rebuilt mid C19 and attic storey detailing added late C19; restoration 1989. Brick, rendered and with terracotta detail to front; probably slate roof. Frontage to Briggate of 3 storeys and attic; rear range of 3 storeys and 5 bays. Frontage: C20 ground floor with access to rear on left; 2nd and attic storey ornamented with architraves, scrolled pediments, moulded plaques and urn finials. INTERIOR: of rear range reputed (1983) to contain important roof structure comprising 3 king-post roof trusses, all with jointing for timber-framed side walling on underside of tie beam, and one having slots for a cross-wall. Surviving remains suggest that this is a roof structure reused in this context and a very rare survival of part of a house in the town centre before the extensive rebuilding during the mid-late C18. Recorded as a hotel in 1740 and a hotel and tavern in 1800. The yard to rear was Bower's Yard and the premises belonged to a wallpaper hanger and factor from c1870. (Michelmore, West Yorkshire Archaeology Service: Report on No.159 Briggate: 1983-).
