14/52 No 11 and No 13 -


Shop, disused and in process of alteration at time of survey (1986). Circa late C17 origins with circa early C19 shop windows. Stone rubble, partly colourwashed and plastered to the front elevation ; slate roof, gabled at ends of front block and to rear ; end stacks to front block, the left end stack projecting, the right end stack corbelled cut ; end stack to rear block. Plan: Deep rectangular plan ; 2 rooms wide to the front, (No 11), most of the internal partitions in process of alteration at time of survey (1986). What remains of the early arrangement is of considerable interest ; the ground floor rooms to the front are unheated but the first floor rooms above have probably late C17 fireplaces suggesting the possiblity of an early shop with domestic quarters on the first floor. The shop has been remodelled in the circa early C19 with a ground floor projection with shop windows to left and right of a central entrance. Alterations have made the building sequence of the rear difficult to establish. At the left end of the front block and slightly set back from it a first,floor room with a corrugated iron roof projects over a doorway. Exterior: 3 storeys. Symmetrical 3-bay front plus a set back 2-storey block at the left end. The front elevation of the main block has a canted ground floor projection with a central door flanked by early C19 20-pane shop windows with curved corners. 2 early C19 first floor tripartite casements ; 12-panes (fixed) to the centre, 4 panes to the outer lights. The second storey has a pair of C19 2-light casements in the centre, 6-panes per light. The set back block at the left end has a square-headed doorway below a 2-light casement, 6-panes per light. Interior: On the ground floor 1 timber column survives supporting the floor above the probably unpartitioned early C19 shop on the ground floor. Both first floor fireplaces have substantial ovolo-moulded stopped timber lintels, probably late C17. Roof trusses of the front block not thoroughly inspected but probably late C17, seen on 5:9:86 removed by 28:9:86. No. 11 is in a crucial positon in Newton Square, facing the market infill in the centre of the square with the churchyard and Church to the rear of the building.
