Above the Fascia

As we rush about during our busy days through our towns and cities it is easy to miss an interesting building.  “High Streets” throughout the country are almost identical, the only difference being the order of the national stores.  Looking above the fascia is good exercise for the neck muscles and can be a joy to the eyes.

24-25 Guildhall Street

This building at 24-25 Guildhall Street is one such building.  Built in the mid 18th century it has been sympathetically maintained and improved over the last 250 years.  Dwarfed by its much younger neighbours, it sits confidently exuding the fabric of the history of Lincoln.

Grade II listed, brick built, stucco front and plain tile roof with  two storeys and attic, it has been two shops for much of its life.  To  the left, early 20th century shopfront, with pilastered surround and gabled brackets, and late 20th century windows. To right, mid 20th century shopfront.

First floor 19th century oriel window flanked by single 20th century casements. Attic, central dormer with 2 sliding sashes, and to right, a single dormer with a casement.
