House. Late C15, extensively restored in 1908. Timber framed, plastered with
exposed imitation framing, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. Crosswing of
former hall house, the remainder demolished, gabled and jettied to street, jetty

extension to right rear. 2 storeys. Ground floor, one tripartite sash of 2:4:2
lights, first floor, square oriel with transom and 3 casements, both of 1908. A

early CL9 sashes of 16 lights, and plain door at front; a photograph taken in
1909 shows the present imitation framing and front windows. The original hall
house was divided into 3 tenements by 1675, of which the present building is
