No. 10 Friar Gate
This unlisted property is located to the east of Friar Gate. The building appears to have previously functioned as part of a fairly large printworks, featuring a domestic frontage. The ground floor features were removed and replaced with an inappropriate shop front during the second half of the twentieth century, leaving little material evidence of the property’s original features. With little evidence of the historic design, a new frontage was designed based upon properties of a similar age within the nearby vicinity. The resultant shop front is of Victorian style and proportions, and now makes a positive contribution to the property and its immediate setting within the Friar Gate conservation area. The works included the installation of a cast iron hanging sign, as well as a security gate.
