Nos 5 and 6
SO 69 NW (SJ 6200) 6/72 24.10.50.


Ostensibly a nondescript range. No 6 roughcast to earlier timber frame
exposed in gabled end with brick nogging. No 5 faced with sham timber
framing and plaster. 2 storeys; modern doors and casement windows; early
C19 ditto to No 6; part rebuilt with modern brick at rear. Actually the
building is timber framed throughout incorporating about three crucks
placed parallel, with one exposed in gabled end of No 5. The building
is probably C15 and certainly the oldest timber framed building in the
towm. A notable priest, Sir William Corvehill, lived here in the early
C16. Formerly known as St Owen's Well House.
