Post Office Stores

Shop. C15 cross-wing, two late C17 or early C18 parallel ranges. Timber framed,
faced in yellow stock brickwork, painted on front, rear and north flank. Red plain
tile hipped roofs. 2 storeys. 3 window range and modern shopfront to parallel wing,

chimney stack to cross-wing, one to rear parallel wing, both truncated at roof ridge.
Internally most of the roof timbers of the cross-wing remain including a cross-

as at present.
