No.35 SILVER STREET, LB ENFIELD: Short Report on Range of Timber-Framed Buildings Affected by Demolition Proposals

Author(s): Andy Wittrick

I visited this site recently and met the current tenant/occupant of the ground floor accommodation, following a request from CON:L&SE team to assess the importance and value of the extant surviving fabric in advance of an application to the LB Enfield, by the current owners for demolition. The building is currently used as a hairdressing salon on the ground floor (with basement storage) with separate accommodation on the upper floor and rear addition. The building frontage runs along Silver Street with the rear of the property bounding the old course of the New River. It is located within the Enfield Town Conservation Area but currently unlisted. 35, Silver Street is a two storey, 3-bay timber-framed structure with a shallow 'M'- shaped roof spanning the main range. An integrated, two-storey range projects at the rear of the building. A contemporary cellar of brick occupies the area under the current shop. The plan form has been considerably altered with the removal of the northern bay on the ground floor to create vehicular access to the rear.
