(Formerly Listed as:
One building containing 2 shops, formerly a house and shop.
C17 with much late C20 alteration. Timber-framed; C20 render
in panels with wave-patterned panels. Plaintiled roofs with a
coved stucco eaves cornice.

sashes arranged 2:1:2 with the centre breaking forward
slightly on the 1st storey. 2 C20 shop fronts to the ground
storey. 3 hipped dormers with plain C20 2-light casement
windows. A double gable at the rear of No.43A and a long rear
wing; a parallel wing to No.43B has 2 flat-headed dormers on
its northern slope with 2-light casement windows. A small
plaster panel on the upper front has an obscure and not
entirely legible Latin inscription relating to the Bury fire.
This seems not to be of an early date and is probably
connected with the Bullen family, who owned the premises for
several generations from the late C18 and were keen local
INTERIOR: No.43B has timbering exposed on the 1st storey:
chamfered main beams and trimmers to the front range and all

Some re-used timbers and no evidence for original partitions.
Attics now inaccessible. The interior of No.43A is said to
have no structure visible.
