House; and post office, with dwelling above and to rear. Early/mid C16 in 2

office was added mid C16 as a parlour block. 2 storeys. Timber-framed, on a

enriched with vinescroll carving. At 1st storey is a mid C20 restoration of
the C17 strapwork pargetting previously on the building. Much of the framing
is exposed at ground storey, with plaster infill panels. Plaintiled roofs
with axial and external chimneys of red brick. Various windows: at ground
storey are C18 or early C19 splayed bays on brackets, and at 1st storey small
pane casements. Several C16 openings with 4-centred arched heads are now
glazed or exposed and plastered; the mutilated cills of two oriels are
exposed, both with rose-carved spandrels. Above the post office are two
windows with moulded mullions and arched heads to each light. The Old Lodge
has a C20 half-glazed door; the post office a C19 6-panelled door, the upper
panels glazed. The wing has evidence for an external staircase at the rear.
Plain framing exposed internally; good close-studwork with tension and arch
wind-bracing, and plain crown post roofs. From the left, the building
1. A shop with a pair of arch-headed windows, and a buttery behind.
