Two houses, built as one in late C16; possible earlier core. 3-cell plan with
lobby entrance. 5 windows. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered.
Plaintiled roof with a detilled wooden eaves cornice. An axial chimney, the
shaft rebuilt in mid C20 red brick. 3 early C18 small pane sashes with thick
glazing bars at ground storey , those at No.32 restored in C20. Various C18,
C19 and C20 casements at 1st storey. Two good early C18 doorways with Gibbs
surrounds, pulvinated friezes and pediments, entrance doors with 6 fielded
panels. Late C16 queenpost roof surviving in part; most of the roof was
rebuilt in pine in C18. Mulbra House has some massive unchamfered floor
joists of C16 type; framing otherwise mainly concealed. This building is
believed to have been a Town-house in C18, and previously a guildhall.
However, its construction appears to post-date the dissolution of the guilds
in 1545.
