56 Low Petergate

Back to Low Petergate

With its neighbours, Nos. 58 and 60, it forms a five-bay, timber-framed range of three storeys and attics, built in the late fifteenth or early sixteenth century. In the early nineteenth century No. 56 was re-fronted with brick. In the early seventeenth century the property was divided into three and chimney stacks were inserted. The upper two storeys of No. 56 are in Flemish Bond, and the hung sash windows have projecting sills and stuccoed heads. Above them is a moulded dentilled cornice.

Part of the original back wall is visible, with posts and curved braces supporting a wall-plate. Inside are to be seen eighteenth century fireplaces and doors and a seventeenth century plaster overmantel with the Stuart arms. Though the staircase from the first to the second floor is early nineteenth century, the secondary stair from second floor to attics is late seventeenth century with bulbous balusters. On the second floor is a seventeenth century door with six panels.
