2 Market Place is a remnant of the former Eclipse Hotel following development for the Nottinghamshire Bank next door at number 1. When the Eclipse Hotel closed, the landlord moved to a new building on Westgate, which, although newer, was called The Old Eclipse!
A mullion is a vertical decorative element that separates sections of a window.
It is a three-storey building with a stone façade. The windows have stone surrounds: those to the left with mullions, those to the right with glazing sash bars. The shop front is 20th-century. It is an attractive little building, but forlorn and in need of refurbishment.
Explore history of earlier shop front but if no evidence is found, reinstate a late 19th-century-style shop. Overhaul and decorate two timber sash windows and four small casements, adding secondary glazing for insulation.
