Full Description

No. 110, built in the early 18th century, has been so drastically remodelled that only the staircase and roof remain unaltered. About 1778, when the adjacent house (Nos. 106, 108) was built, the staircase windows were blocked and the house modernised; most fittings are of the late 18th or early 19th century. Like the adjacent houses (88–90) this formed part of the Stockdale property and was sold by W. S. Powell in 1815 (YCA, E.96, f. 250v.). In 1820 it was resold to the occupier, Thomas Mawson, a combmaker (E.97, f. 110).

The house is of three storeys and the front is stuccoed above modern shop fronts; each of the upper floors has two windows in original openings, but with modern casements. At the eaves is a dentilled and modillioned cornice, carried through from Nos. 106, 108.

The plan of the house is similar to that of No. 106 but has the fireplaces placed diagonally across the corners of the rooms. The staircase which now starts at the first floor has square newels, heavy moulded handrail and closed string with boldly overhanging capping which carries turned balusters, some of an early bulbous form and others of rather later design with and without square knops.
