SO8932 CHURCH STREET 859-1/6/108 (South side) 04/03/52 No.50 Royal British Legion Club (Formerly Listed as: CHURCH STREET (South side) British Legion Club)

GV I

Formerly known as: Mason's Arms CHURCH STREET. Club building, formerly an inn. Late C15, much modified C19 and earlier. Timber-framing, brickwork, tile roofs. PLAN: formerly part of the extended row Nos 35-51 (qv), this was end of terrace; long jettied block, now under-built to street, with deep wing to back. EXTERIOR: street front 2 storeys and basement, 4-windowed. At first floor, in braced box framing, C18 three-light and 2-light casements with horizontal bars to No.50, and 2 triple 2-light casements with central unit taken down to bressumer level to No.51. Ground floor, in brickwork, has 4:12:4-pane triple sash and a multi-pane C18 shop front to No.50 returned to deep-set early 3-plank door in heavy post framing and to cusped flat ogee head. Two 2-light and one 3-light casement with bars, and 6-panel door to No.51. Cellar grille far left; small brick stack in front of ridge near left end. Right return is plain brick with raised brick-coped gable on kneeler. Deep back wing to framed gable end, in 2 storeys, with large eaves stack and small ridge stack. Overlooking adjoining No.49 (qv) are various casements, and an early 2-light gabled dormer. Back of main block with various additions. INTERIOR not fully inspected; roof structure said to be concealed but assumed to be as in other parts of the terrace. Remains of wide C18 fireplace with shouldered architrave, heavy chamfered beams, a panel of wattle and daub under glass frame, and early plank door to cellar. In a back room a very wide but blocked fireplace. Some heavy braced framing, but much is concealed by later ceilings and panelling. Of outstanding interest as part of a medieval terrace, built as a speculative development for Abbey (qv). Unlike others in the terrace (qqv 35-38 & 41-48) the early structure has not been opened up in this property, but it was clearly part of the whole terrace, and is graded accordingly; the recessed placing of the early door shows extent of the former jettying.
