Source/Archive record SYO2612 - 1 Little Shambles

Title 1 Little Shambles
Date/Year 2020


Decay was identified in timber frame elements established as 15th century in date, likely historic and likely 20th century, by the historic timber assessment. Decay was identified in all window frames in the south-east rear elevation, except the north-east 2nd floor window frame. Decay was also identified in all four 1st and 2nd floor window frames present in the south-west side elevation. The infill panels were found to consist of render comprised of fine aggregate, sand and cement applied over expanded metal mesh fixed to the timbers (CYC 2020). This form of modern construction likely dates to the alteration and renovation of the building around 1950. No structural elements were found behind the infill panels of brickwork.
