Large house, at back pavement edge, now in two occupations. C16 with much

large flush greensand quoins, tile roof, probably replacing stone slate. A
complex building, difficult to categorise, but with a through passage, in a long
narrow block with gabled extensions to left, and a projecting section to the
street front, right, now fenestrated, which may once have been a large stack.

with transom, at first floor 2-light casements, with glazing bars, mainly C20;
in the projecting 'bay' a 3-light at each level, then, far right a small C20
single light above a recessed doorway with plank door to overlight in segmental
opening, on 3 steps. Off-centre left is C20 porch covering good flush 6-panel
door, and far left is C20 six-panel door to overlight under a 2-light window.
This end bay is slightly stepped forward, and at an angle to the remainder. The
left return, to No 1, has various openings, and a gabled wing. Back is 2+3
windows, all C20 casements and large French window, a large brick gable, and one
dormer window. Interior of No 2 inspected; includes C16 moulded and stopped
