House, now part of shopping arcade. Early C17. Timber-frame
with plaster; stone party walls corbelled out to first-floor
jetty; zig-zag pantile roof. Single-depth range parallel to
street. 2 storeys; 3-window range. The timber is carved,
mostly restored. Three 6-light scratch-moulded mullioned and
transomed first-floor windows. Enriched early C17 carving with
vine-leaf, patera, grapes etc to bressumer and eaves fascia;
other timbers are similar but mostly late C19. INTERIOR: now a
C20 shopping mall with a left-of-centre entrance and no
visible features of interest. History: a photograph of 1865
shows the ground floor to be coursed limestone rubble with
sash windows to the left and a 5-light stone-mullioned window
in a canted bay to the right of the original door position.
The original house is said to be the one that Judge Jeffries
lodged in during the trials at the " Bloody Assize".
