Early C15 timber framed range of buildings fronting on George Street with

has wavy roofline to very high pitched, tiled roof; and even wavier
massive, moulded beam supporting overhanging 1st floor which is close
studded below half rail and has more open studding above. Plaster
filling. 4 large, 2- and 3-light casement windows (one modern, the others
leaded C17) are interspersed with 5 much smaller, 2-light casement windows
above an upper rail; and, 3rd from left, an original C15 wood-framed
window with 2 cusped, pointed, leaded lights. Ground floor renewed with
continuous, small-paned glazing and imitation plaster-filled studding
below. The Verulam Road front has, on the left, the gable end of the
George Street range, plastered and blank except for one tiny attic window,
flush framed with glazing bars. The right hand section, which is a 1st
floor hall of circa 1400 has a 16-light and a 13-light, leaded casement
window on 1st floor. Ground floor has partly-glazed modern door between
reproduction shop windows with glazing bars. Inside, little early work
is visible on ground floor, but the very large, crown-post open roof
truss is preserved on 1st floor.

Nos 18to 28 (consec) form a group.
