House. A C15 range parallel with the road; set forward to left a late C16
cross-wing with steeply-pitched gable and adjoining this a lower C18 wing.

cross-wing. Casement windows of mid C20; canted former shop windows to both
gable ends facing road. One gabled half-dormer. 2 mid C20 doors. C15 range
has stack to right, almost at the gable end. Interior modernised and altered,
especially on ground floor. C15 range has exposed first floor framing, with a
