Town Survey Update 1998/2001:

Dorset Street: Sheet nineteen

Building(s) : 6 & 7 Photo : E32

Current Use:

6 7 Dorset St E32

No. 6 – ‘Number Six’ hairdressers – ground floor.

No. 7 – Lamberts Solicitors – ground floor and both first floors.

Description:

The Grade II listing can be summarised as

Possibly17th century. First floor rendered with rusticated plaster quoins and centre plaster plaque with king’s head and small recessed stone panel with date 1605. Moulded eaves and lead gutter.

The listing also refers to two square projecting 18th century oriel windows. These had already been replaced by modern flush metal windows at the time of the previous survey.

Probably full timbered frame

Comment:

Shop fronts and fascias are very different, but both are neat and well kept.

Altogether an excellent building in a historic street apart from the modern windows.

Importance: A

Not included in previous survey
