SE3033SE HIGH COURT LANE 714-1/79/206 (East side) 21/02/92 No.19


House, now warehouse. Late C18/early C19 with late C19 alterations. Rendered brick, grey slate roof with large stack to right. 3 storeys, 3 first-floor windows: 4-pane sashes, slightly cambered arched heads, narrower central window, smaller windows just below eaves to 2nd floor. Central door with overlight, flanking canted bay windows. Rear: stair window left, 12-pane sash to top story, right, C20 frame below. No.17 (qv), on north side, probably part of the house which in 1847 had bow windows (OS map). INTERIOR: not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: the site was an important one, being just west of the parish church and close to the river wharves and occupied since at least the early C18 (Cossins map). The group, with Nos 15, 17 (qqv) & 21 (not included), was possibly built as a complex of merchant's house, workers' housing and warehouse in the later C18. The National School (1812) stood just to the east, across the school yard, suggesting that this house might have been associated with it. The area declined as a residential quarter during the C19 and particularly after the construction of the railway viaduct in 1869. A lodging house in 1902 (Insurance map), by which time the bay windows had been built.
