GV II*

Warehouse with adjoining block, now shop. C15. Timber-framed and rendered with gabled plain tile roofs. PLAN: 2 blocks with wide-span main block and narrower-span block to north-west with front parapet as continuation of main facade. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Main elevation has one small and one larger sash window with moulded surrounds, each with a single vertical glazing bar. Ground floor has C20 plate-glass shop fronts as 3 canted bays and with one C20 entrance door. INTERIOR: main block has a remarkable timber-frame of 4 narrow, equal bays and of very wide span. The uncambered tie beams are supported on jowled posts with short arch braces, back and front, to the 3 central trusses, to providing a single large volume. The end walls have widely spaced studs and external wall braces at front corners. Roof has crown posts with substantial longitudinal braces on end and central frames and intermediate trusses have plain 'propping posts' with forked heads clasping collar purlin. Possibly a purpose-built warehouse. The narrower block to the north-west formed part of a larger building with Nos 86 & 88 (qv) and is timber-framed with 2 cambered tie beams exposed on 1st floor. That adjoining the main block has grooves for arch braces and was therefore 'open-framed'. The other, defining a square bay, has neither partition nor arch braces. The height to wall-plate level here, is suggestive of a small open hall. HISTORY: the main structure was referred to as a warehouse in C16 property deeds. (RCHME: Essex Central and South-west: London: 1921-: 177).
