10/179 No 28 (Biggleston)

Detached ironmonger's shop. Dated 1894. Painted rubble walls. Grouted scantle
slate pair of parallel roofs with hipped rear ends and pair of pediments to
the front gables over the double shopfront. Cast-iron ogee-section gutters.
Plan: Square plan shop under 2 roofs. Unpierced masonry walls at the sides,
full width glazed shopfront at the front with central splayed entrance. Built
in front gardens of pair of C19 cottages.
Exterior: Single storey. West front: unaltered double shopfront with central
doorway set back within open splayed porch formed between the shop windows. Original 5-light shop windows, 2 panes high, and original doors. Over each
half is a moulded pediment. Semi circular shop sign between pediments.
Interior: Simple interior.
The reason for these single-storey shops being built in the front gardens is
that in earlier days in this area, the only shop was the Harvey Emporium.
