capitals. The binding beam is moulded, with moulded arched braces to it. The
wallplates are moulded with converging stops. Moulded cambered tiebeam with 2
moulded arched braces. Roof inaccessible at time of survey, but the owner's

couple, and a central crownpost (probably octagonal) with moulded base, moulded
and crenellated capital and 4-way rising braces. The stack is original or
early; the fabric of brick and tiles in random bond is visible from no. 12 (item
