115 High Street

This three storey building with a late 20th century red brick, stretcher bond, façade facing the High Street. This is the result of a re-facing of an older building, the bulk of which remains to the rear. The rear walls are rendered and painted. Where the render has become detached brickwork is visible.

The rear of the building is covered with a double pitched roof covered with pantiles. There is a section of flat roof behind the High Street façade but the details of this are unclear.

High Street façade: On the ground floor there is a modern, projecting shop front. To the right is a glazed double door with a horizontal plate glass panel above. To the left is a single large pane of glass. Above both of these elements is a flat panel, partially filled by signage. The fenestration of the first and second floors is the same, each containing three windows with projecting brick panels below and above. The windows are sliding sashes. The façade terminates with a capped parapet.

Ship Inn Yard façade: On the second floor there are eight windows of approximately equal size. Each has a painted sill that projects from the wall line. There is evidence that the fenestration pattern on the western end of the first floor formerly included six windows aligned with those above. Four windows remain aligned, but two have been blocked. The first floor windows are taller than those on the second floor but have the same style of sills. At the eastern end of the floor a there is a single window with a wider sill under two second floor windows. The current glazing does not occupy the whole available window recess.

On the ground floor two windows covered with bars are located towards the western end. There is evidence at the eastern end that other windows have been blocked. A pair of single doors under a combined canopy are adjacent to the windows and further east is evidence of a blocked doorway. Rear façade: There is a single window at the southern end of the first floor. This is a narrow sliding sash of wood. There is a painted sill that projects from the façade. On the ground floor boarding up appears to cover what was previously a double doorway. No rainwater goods are visible on the High Street façade. One down comer runs down the rear façade, draining the south facing roof slope. A gutter runs along the Ship Inn Yard façade and ties into three down comers equally spaced along the wall.
