Drawing of a timber framed building in Shrewsbury in Shropshire. Shrewsbury is memorable for a well preserved Tudor legacy with its narrow, winding streets, small courtyards and alleyways and its timber framed buildings. During the period of c.1500-1644, the town enjoyed great prosperity and this is shown by the houses built by its successful cloth and wool merchant families such as the Rowleys, Owens and Irelands. This particular house has typical features of a town house- it is narrow and tall - with three storeys. The first floor has a balustrade running along it. The window on the first floor can be described as an oriel window - that its is overhangs and rests on corbels. The window is mullioned and transomed and beneath it there is decorative plasterwork. The second floor has a dormer window.
