3-9 Bishopton Lane

Two storey brick buildings with later 20th century rebuild to all and currently functioning as one. There appears to have been at least three distinct building sections, with the gable end, facing onto the High Street transformed into the main entrance for its current function. The buildings have all been re-fronted within recent years and so this description does not accurately reflect the true fabric of each.

However, they built of combination of brick in stretcher coursing, cream-painted render and limestone/sandstone ashlar. The elevation facing towards the High Street has modern glass panes within a white-painted wood frame and panelling with an in-set single door entrance on the ground floor. There are two vertical sash windows within modern sandstone ashlar and cream-painted render. The following elevation, facing onto Bishopton Lane has five large rectangular panes separated by sandstone pilasters within a sandstone ashlar frontage and a single door entrance, leading to the first floor, on the ground floor. The first floor has five small vertical sash windows, again, separated by sandstone pilasters. There is also a thin rectangular sash window directly above the single entrance with a small sandstone sill. The elevation facing onto Bishopton Lane has two large horizontal, rectangular panes and a single square pane replacing what was a single entrance all within a limestone frame topped by brown-painted metal lintels.

On the first floor there are three 3x4 casement double-glazed windows within moulded concrete frames. There is still a remnant semi-circular hood over what was a central single entrance. The rear of the building is presumably brick coated in cream-painted render. There are no windows and two single entrances on the ground floor with one of those allowing entry into a single storey extension. The different evelvations include a hipped roof, a flat roof and a gable roof and there are no chimneys extant on any.
