This property with the house adjoining on the south are now converted
into flats and are known as Ancient Houses Nos 1 to 4.
A C15-C16 timber-framed and plastered building with a tiled roof. Two
storeys. The predominant features are the 2 two-storeyed bays which
project on the front with boldly moulded brick plinths and rising above
the eaves level to gables with carved bargeboards. The ground storey
has 7-light bar and transom bays with lattice leaded lights and the remains
of moulded sills and frames. The upper windows are later casements on
moulded bressumers. The remainder of the front has exposed timber-framing
and small casement windows with some blocked original window. The doorways
are approached by flights of steps from the pavement.
