TM 0242 3/3 26.4.50.


Latter part of Cl5 with later additions on east and west, a 3 storey wing
on south-west and a long wing extending south. Frontage circa 80 ft.
The whole building is timber-framed and plastered, roofs tiled. The
timber-framing is exposed on the north side of the main building and this is
the most interesting and picturesque part. Each of the upper storeys
projects on this north front on curved brackets with moulded capitals and
shafts - the shafts on ground floor front are panelled and have traceried
heads. Some of the timberwork and most of the window mullions have been
renewed, but the westerly window of the 1st floor has remains of traceried
heads. Interior includes open kingpost roof and moulded beams. The wing
on east originally projected (upper storey) on both sides but has been
underbuilt in brick; the east end is semi-octagonal. The wing on west has
mainly C18 characteristics and probably was part of the old Grammar School.
The wing on south-west is of 3 storeys with projecting upper storey on south
and the long wing extending south (used as a dormitory to the workhouse in
C18) has ground floor brick facing on east with small panel and date 1780. NMR

All the listed buildings in Church Walk form a group.
