116 High Street

The three storey building of glass, panel and metal frame construction above the ground floor on the High Street façade. Side and rear elevations are comprised of brick laid in English bond. High Street façade fenestration:

1. Shop front obscured by a metal shutter.

2. First and second floors each have seven repeats of a window with a blue panel above. Each window is spilt horizontally into two unequally sized panes.

The lower, larger pane is fixed in three of the bays and opens on a vertical swivel in bays. The upper panes open horizontally. The shop front projects and is framed by a pair of wooden pilasters painted blue and white. A down comer outlet is visible at the base of the pilaster on the right.

The entrance to Blue Post Yard is to the right of the façade. Concrete lintels supporting the building above the passageway are visible in the rear façade. To the rear is an L-shaped two storey extension.

This has a flat roof over which the fire escape route from the second floor passes. The metal escape ladder is attached to the west facing façade of the extension, terminating above the ground floor. A down comer and foul pipe run in a cast iron pipe adjacent to the ladder. The west and north facing facades of the extension each contain a single widow with exterior bars at the first floor level.

Each window has three sections, with the middle section split horizontally to give a small upper, opening pane. At the second floor level the rear elevation contains a window, of the same form as those on the first floor, and a fire escape door. There is a small structure on the roof of the main building which could be a plant room.
