15 Market Place - The Dial

The 'new' Dial – 1841

The Dial was one of the drinking haunts of John Shippam – 'Old Jack' – who was murdered in 1878.

Brief History

The Old Dial was built in the early 19th century and opened onto Stockwell Gate. This was demolished in 1841 and replaced with the current building at the Market Place end of the Old Dial’s yard. The Dial is Grade II listed.

Current Condition

The three-storey building is painted ashlar stone with a concrete tiled roof and four round-arched windows on the ground floor flanked by single panel doors with similar fanlights. It is a striking building in fair condition which has group value with neighbouring properties. In need of cosmetic work.

Suggested Works

Replace concrete tiled roof with natural slate. Conduct repairs to windows.
