Cottage row. C15 to C16. Timber framed and part exposed close studding with
large panel framing to left return, all with plaster infill. Part tile hung.
Underbuilt with red brick. Plain tiled roof. A 4-framed bay hall house in
origin with jettied cross-wing and framed rear-wing; the whole an impressively
large framed building in its final state. Two storeys on plinth, with jetty to
right on moulded brackets and with moulded bressummer. Hipped roof with gablets
to left and to transverse, projecting hip at right. Stacks to left, and moulded
and clustered to centre right, and offset and moulded to rear left. Blocked
mullioned windows ranged under eaves to left hand bays, and, unblocked, to
jettied wing. Irregular 5 wooden casements on each floor, with blocked moulded
mullioned windows to jettied wing. Boarded doors to left, to centre with flat
hood and to right. The size, quality and layout of the building, with long
ranges of eaves-windows, suggest a connection with the medieval cloth trade.
