brick chimney. 2 windows on 1st floor with segmental heads and late glazed
sashes. Large shop window on ground floor, late C19 with scrolled brackets
to modillion fascia. Doorway to right with segment head. Formerly one house
with No 50 (probably partly timber framed). Roof space very interesting,

timber framed, said to be the remains of a mediaeval or early Tudor hall house.

classical cornice within and enriched window frame of room inside. Back room
