Two attached houses. C15 and C16; remodelled C17 and C18. Timber-framed, partly faced in brick [painted] with plat-band, the right-hand gable is plastered. Clay plain tile roof with gabled ends. Brick axial, gable-end and lateral stacks.
PLAN: No.30 on left is of 3-bays, the right-hand 2 bays was an open hall heated from an open hearth fire, originally with a closed truss between the hall and left bay, and to right the remains of a further bay truncated when the 2-bay cross-wing [No.32] was added in the C16. A floor and axial stack were inserted into the hall in about the early C17 and the front of the house was faced in brick in the early C18.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front with jet tied cross-wing on right. Ground floor has two 12-pane sashes with thick glazing bars on left, 6-panel door, 3-light mullion-transom windows with iron casements and small C20 shop window; first floor has two cross-mullion-transom windows with iron casements in hipped half-dormers and 2 and 3-light casements. At rear, gable-ended cross-wing projects on left, small gable and gabled dormer on right; some exposed timber-framing to right of cross-wing.
INTERIOR: Main hall range [No.30] has chamfered axial beam with pyramid stops and fireplace with elliptical brick arch in former hall; C18 joinery including panelled doors and cupboards, china cupboard with shaped shelves, and moulded plank door; 3-bay roof with two smoke-blackened hall bays with arch-braced truss, clasped purlins and common-rafter couples, all smoke-blackened; truncated right-hand bay has smoke-blackened purlin ends. 2-bay cross-wing has ogee-headed doorway on left side and cambered bressummer between front and back ground floor rooms; 2-bay cross-wing roof has collar and tie-beam truss with curved queen-struts, clasped purlins, curved wind-braces and common-rafter couples, all lightly smoke-blackened, possibly from smoke drifting from the open hall which must have remained open for a period after the cross-wing had been added.
