Record Details

NHER Number:718
Type of record:Building
Name:Even Nos 56 to 60 King Street


Even Nos 56 to 60 are formed of three buildings, one on the street dating to around 1700, and two at the rear. The northern rear range dates to the late 18th or early 19th century, and the southern to around 1600. Although their original use is unclear, these buildings formed a public house and shops during the 19th century.

The front range rises to three storeys of red brick, and has a plain 19th century pub front. A 17th century carriage entry survives on the far left, as do some 17th century windows on the second floor. Under the southern rear wing there is also an early 17th century rib vaulted brick undercroft.
