GV II

Row of 3 town houses, altered as shops; all now derelict. Probably mid C18; raised and altered in C19. Mostly brown handmade brick in English garden wall bond (3+1), with ashlar plinth and dressings, slate roof. Probably double-depth plan, all single-fronted. Now 3 storeys but probably formerly 2 storeys, a 5-window range. Offset left of centre are 2 doorways, that on the left square-headed, with C18 "rusticated and keyed" wedge lintel, the other round-headed with set-in architrave including consoles to moulded lintel and small keystone. Left of these doorways is a simple shop front framed by fluted pilasters; right of it are 2 shop windows, the 1st with plain surround and the 2nd (incorporating a door) with sunk panel pilasters and prominent cornice. At 1st floor are 5 windows with raised sills and "rusticated and keyed" lintels. 2nd floor, of later C19 brick has segmental-headed sashes with gauged red brick heads. Most openings boarded at time of survey. INTERIOR not accessible. HISTORY: interesting example of Georgian town houses built in narrow wiend, probably in earliest phase of domestic building on rear of ancient burgage plots. In poor condition at time of survey (1992). Forms group with Nos 4-14 opposite (qv).
