TQ3104SW MEETING HOUSE LANE 577-1/64/514 (South side) 20/08/71 Nos.45-48 (Consecutive) (Formerly Listed as: MEETING HOUSE LANE Nos.41-53 (Consecutive))

GV II

Houses, now shops and offices. Late C18 or early C19. Stucco scored to imitate ashlaring. Roofs of Nos 45 and 46 of tile, those of Nos 47 and 48 not visible due to the extreme narrowness of the street. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. For the purpose of description the group can be broken down into pairs formed by Nos 45 and 46, and Nos 47 and 48. Each pair has a 3-window range. The ground floor on Nos 45 and 46 is taken up by a single shop which has been much rebuilt in the late C20 according to an early C19 design. One shop each to Nos 47 and 48, the former with a C19 sliding sash and entablature, the latter with the entablature only. All ground-floor openings are flat arched, while all windows above are camber arched with projecting sills. The first-floor windows have 6 x 6 sashes of an original C19 design; the second-floor 3 x 6. The centre range of each pair is blocked, suggesting that each pair was originally a single house. Boxed and guttered eaves to Nos 45 and 46; guttered eaves to Nos 47 and 48. There is an iron sign standard of C19 date attached to the front wall of Nos 45 and 46. INTERIOR: not inspected. These buildings form a most important group with Nos 1-12, 23-32, 36-41, 43-44, and 49-53 Meeting House Lane (qv), which is the centre of the section of the Old Town known as the Lanes.
