Full description

Unknown, 1903, Brewster Sessions & Quarter Sessions (Cartographic). SDV347935.

House is marked as ?Braggitt? on an annotated copy of the 1889 Ordnance Survey map from which it is presumed that the premises was licenced to sell liquor.

Child, P., 1996, Proposed Replacement of Shop Window, The Vaults, 1 High Street, Bradninch (Correspondence). SDV347763.

Shop front is of historical merit being a good example of a later 19th century front with an integral side entrance door as well as the central door for the shop. It has five pilasters, all moulded, and supporting moulded brackets under the cornice which runs along the entire front. With the exception of the modern shop door, this is a very coplete example of a period shop front and although clearly later than the original date of the building, sits very comfortably with the rest of the elevation. It also forms a group with adjacent shop fronts of a similar period.
