Listing Text

(north side)
No 23

Early C17 with C18 alterations. Much rebuilt after fire in 1973. Timber framed.
Tiled pitched roof. Originally 2 storey range with jettied upper floor comprising 3
separate units. In the C18, the roof was raised to accommodate attics and rebuilt
with four gabled dormers, though the original roof trusses were retained. The walls
are rendered. On the ground floor is a shop front of similar design to the C19 shop
front existing at the time of the fire. Much of the timber frame and facade
survived the fire as did some C17 timber panelling on the 1st floor but the
load-bearing function of the timber frame has now been taken over by a new
reinforced concrete frame. Also known as No 1 Church Street.
