Type and Period (4)
The Queen's Head, p.h., No. 44, was demolished in 1964. The front range, of three storeys and timber-framed, was built in the late 15th century. It was originally of three bays, roofed parallel with the street, but the N. bay was formed into a separate tenement in the early 19th century. Behind the middle bay was a small early 17th-century wing of brick and timber framing; it probably replaced an original stair-annexe. Further S. was a larger back wing of brick added in the late 17th century. The framed range was jettied towards the street and stuccoed. Its roof had three tall crown-posts (up to 8 ft. long) with enlarged heads carrying a collar-purlin between crossed-braces supporting the side-purlins and the heads of the crown-posts. Late 17th-century fittings in the back wing included a fragment of a staircase with heavy bulbous balusters, moulded handrail and square newels, and a door-case surmounted by an entablature with pulvinated frieze and broken pediment. Preserved in the Castle Museum is a large bracket which formed one side of the original front entrance; it is carved with a Tudor rose and stylised foliage. Demolished.
