This house comprises the west wing of the premises occupied by the Friars
of the Sack, built in 1263, dissolved in 1307 and burnt out by the French
in 1377. It was largely modernized in 1869. The walls are of rubble.
The north front is gabled, with a buttress at its north east angle. It
contains a C13 2 light window on the 1st floor, and a small C14 rectangular
window on the ground floor, also an old, partly moulded, stringcourse.
The other window and the doorway on this front are modern. The east wall
is timber framed with brick infilling. In the centre is a slight projection
containing a chimney of later date with a window in it on the ground
floor level and a C16 stack above. The VCH says the house (old No 17)
has a C14 roof and interior.
