Claremont Hill, Shrewsbury
Claremont Hill, Shrewsbury
This a narrow street of cottagey houses. The alignment on St Mary's Church might not be accidental. The houses in the photo are all listed buildings, and are 17C timber-framed buildings encased in brick in the 18C. On the left the bow windows are a 20C alteration. The arched opening to the passage to the rear has a high relieving arch over it. The square opening under the right-hand window might be a cellar vent. The next two shows signs of alterations, with relieving arches showing the position of former windows or doors. Then the houses under the mansard roof, a later alteration, may originally have been a single house (two of the present houses are at the rear, accessed via the wide archway). There are cellar windows at pavement level. This building can be seen more clearly in LinkExternal link
