Reference Name MLI95865

Name:
Conduit House, 14 St Paul's Street, Stamford

Summary:
Conduit House, 14 St Paul's Street, Stamford, is a complex building incorporating early stonework. It was significantly altered during the 18th and 19th centuries

Location:
STAMFORD, SOUTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
PRN 38367
This house incoporates a pier and part of a wall arcade of 13th century date [the pier is described as Norman in the Stamford Survey Group report - see below - and its appearance is Romanesque]. It is conjectured that these features may have belonged to a building with a hall and an aisle. The ridge of the main roof is centred over the suggested nave of the hall implying an early arrangement although the roof construction is not visible.The house itself appears to be of late medieval origin, and retains a timber framed first floor jetty in the western part of the rear wall. It was considerably altered in the 18th and 19th century and includes various internal fittings from this period. {1}
This house incoroporates the remains of an Early English arch and a solitary round pillar of Norman character. These features are remains of a stone building aligned east-west parallel to the road. It had a north aisle and possibly a south aisle and may have had an ecclesiastical origin. {2}
This two storey rendered stone house dates to the early 18th century with 19th century additions and fenestration [this date is probably incorrect - see above]. For the full description and the legal address of this listed building please refer to the appropriate List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. {3}
