3-4 Market Place has a late 20th-century shopfront at street level with an early 20th-century timber-framed picture window on the first floor.
The shop signage is characterful if over-dominant. The building is deteriorating – the whole façade is a lightweight timber structure.
Remove shopfront and lower fascia to allow structural repairs to be carried out. Replace gutter and rebuild cornice and upper fascia. Repair first floor glazed frontage including new leaded glass to spandrels. New glazed timber lower shopfront with fascia (excluding signage & pilasters). Install interior security shutters.
A pilaster is a rectangular, flat column that protrudes from a wall.
