Summary

House dates to at least the 19th century and includes original, multi-paned, painted-timber, vertical-sliding sash windows. Although most of the smaller houses have plain, recessed doorways, No 52 is one of the very few with a doorcase surround that has a genuinely vernacular character.

52 Church Street SX69706018
A small cottage joined on the left to No. 51 Church Street and on the right to 'Cornerways' (or No. 1 Wellington Square?) Stone built and rendered with simple single span slate roof. Wooden arched moulding round doorway; sash windows. Probably early 19th century.
Tithe Apportionment: 3047: 'Dwelling House'. It would appear that this house and No. 51 to the south were one house in 1843 and Plot 3046 represents 'Cornerways', No. 53 to the west.

52 Church Street
This house is typical of the type of dwelling that dominates the Conservation Area, although it is one of a diminishing number that still retains its original, multi-paned, painted-timber, vertical-sliding sash windows (The crown glass panes and the absence of horns from its upper sashes are of particular significance in evidencing their originality).
Although most of the smaller houses have plain, recessed doorways, No 52 is one of the very few with a doorcase surround that has a genuinely vernacular character.


Ordnance Survey, 2016, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV359352.

52 Church Street lies next to 'Cornerways' on a triangular patch of land at the western end of Church Street.
