Part of house, now house and shop. C16 or earlier, altered in C18 and C19.
Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 3-bay

comprises no. 140 (Gages) (item 8/207, q.v.) to the left. C18 external stack to
right, plastered. C19 2-storey lean-to extension with slate roof to rear, and
C19 stack beyond, enclosed by single-storey lean-to extension of painted brick
with slate roof. 2 storeys and unlit attic. 2-window range of late C19/early
C20 sashes of 2 lights. Roof hipped at front. The right return has one similar

Entrance to house at rear. The ground floor has a blocked hearth, and an C18/19

probably altered for the present hip, typically an C18 feature.
