(307) Building, adjacent to St. Sampson's church (Plate 122; Fig. 108), is of three storeys and attics, timber-framed with the upper storeys jettied on both the long elevations, and of three bays with no evidence for any internal partitions or heating. It was probably built in the late 16th century and its modern use as shops and warehouse may reflect its original purpose though its proximity to St. Sampson's church suggests that it may have had some social or ecclesiastical function. In the 18th century it was used as stables, later converted to a warehouse with corn chambers above (YCA, E93, f. 115; E97, ff. 252–252v).
At the S. end, the ground floor projects to fit below the jetty of the end tenement of the Newgate range (Monument 290). The walls have been partly rebuilt in brick; the original framing had ogee down-braces in each bay (Fig. 3j) and irregularly-disposed windows, two to the W. on ground and second floors and two to the E. on the first floor. The attic, an original feature, has a floor of lime-ash plaster. The claspedpurlin roof has the two internal trusses designed to provide through access: on each side the purlin is carried by a short horizontal member tenoned into a queen-strut between tie-beam and rafter. The building was restored c. 1960, after a period of considerable decay.
