Row of 3 houses, C17 extended and altered, rubble stone with
Bridgwater tile and stone slate roofs. Two storeys and attic, L-
plan. Original range, Nos 54 and 55, to left, has south end stack
and step in roofline. Left section has two first floor small 16-
pane sashes and two ground floor triple casements. Next section
has ground floor C20 window, doors to Nos 55 and 54 and a 2-light
mullion window to right. First floor C20 window, casement pair and
triple casement. This range has single long tie-beam-and-collar
truss roof with evidence that rear wall has since been built out.
Extensive smoke blackening. No 53, to right, has roof raised
slightly, hipped at north east angle and large brick south end
stack. Stonework is continuous with No 54 adjoining but windows
have C19 flush ashlar surrounds. Three-window east front with
centre door and right windows stepped up, the upper one under eaves
dormer gable. Two-window north front with two similar eaves dormer
gables. Rear wing, Nos 51 and 52, is added and much altered and
not of special interest. No 55 has short section of heavily

been a malt-house. Smoke-blackening does not appear consistent
with a former open hall house.
