C17 altered. Originally 2, 2 storeyed cottages, each one bay wide. Third storey added C19. Ground floors now combined into a single shop but upper floors are still separate. There is a modern shop front on the ground floors. The upper floors are rendered, with a band at 2nd floor level. Although the roofs were raised in the C19, some of the original C17 principal timbers survive. Both houses had double roofs. Tie beams survive at front and rear in both as well as some of the original principal rafters, also, in the northern truss of the back roof in No 15, a raking queen strut, and, in the back slope of the front roof of No 13, a butt purlin. Also surviving in No 15 (above ground floor level) the original brick chimney stack with grouped rectangular flues, and, just below the tie beam of the northern roof truss at the rear, a 3-light timber-framed window with diamond mullions.
