Source/Archive record SYO2365 - 32 Coppergate

Title 32 Coppergate
Date/Year 2019


The exposed timbers were primarily from the first-floor jetty and included the bressummer. Two phases of lath-and-plaster wall render were also identified as well as the original plaster and brick infill and the later modern cement render. On the ground floor a timber post and post past were exposed to the left of the shop frontage. The post supported a first-floor beam and had been repaired with the addition of smaller timber planks and posts. In general, there was deterioration in a number of the timbers, particularly from woodworm. This was most visible in the ground floor timbers where the original post had rotted away nearly entirely at its base.
