The Old Guildhall
(Formerly listed as Teacher's Centre, THE STREET, previously listed as Primary School)
Former guildhall. Probably late C15 with C16 wing to rear; considerable later alterations, especially in later C19; the date 1725 on the right hand side refers to the brick casing at this end of the building. Timber framed and plastered, red brick casing to right hand gable; plaintiled roof, pantiles to rear wing. 2 storeys; the facade and left hand gable have a jettied first floor with bracketed corner post. C20 casement windows with square leaded panes, an almost continuous range of 6 to the first floor; 2 C20 boarded doors with cover fillets, one with rectangular fanlight. 3 stacks with late C19 shafts of fluted brickwork with moulded bases and oversailing caps; one of the stacks is set flush with the facade, with the lower portions of 2 former stacks to either side. The main feature of the building is the fine 5-bay crown post roof: cambered and arch-braced tie beams, 4 crown posts of square. section with moulded bases and heads; the remainder of the interior is much altered.
