House, late C14 or C15 with remodelling of C16 and later. A 2-storey cross-
wing whose main range once stood to its left along the street frontage.
Timber-framed and plastered, the front gable rebuilt in c19 brick (now
painted). Concrete plaintiled roof. An axial late C16 or early C17 chimney
of pink/buff brick, the shaft rebuilt in mid C20 red brick. A mid c19 square
bay shop window with small panes, linked to a flat canopy over the entrance
door on carved console brackets; C19 half-glazed 4-panelled door. The front 2
or 3 bays of the house are the earliest, with heavy studding, jowled storey

was extended rearwards beyond the chimney in C15 or early C16: heavy close-

section of roof not examined). A further rearward extension is possibly C16
and tapers to an exceptionally narrow span. The 1st floor structure and part
