Sevenoaks Travel (with Lamberts solicitors on the first floor).

Description:

The Grade II listing is summarised as: An 18th century building with 18th century half glazed door with rectangular fanlight over. Moulded cornice over shop windows. First floor has three 18th century sash windows with glazing bars and flat segmental arches over.

The shop window and doors have been replaced in recent years and the three first storey windows have been replaced without glazing bars. The photograph shows that, while the right hand window is a modern sash, the left hand has a top hung transom and is designed to look like a sash when closed.

The brick front is likely to conceal an older timber frame.
