1/16 No. 5



House. Early C17, but not a single build. Timber framed with brick panel
infill and Welsh slate roof. Eight very narrow bays of timber framing, with
straight arched bracing and middle rails. Two bays to the left of the
doorway, but a blocked door on the front elevation to the right suggests it
was possibly formerly two dwellings. Two and three light casement windows are
all renewals. Gable end and axial stack behind the entry.
