Formerly known as: Foresters Public House CHURCH STREET.

and rendered with gabled clay plain tile roof.

frontage. Street elevation has one wide, shallow, double-hung
sash window with small panes and one 2-light casement with
small panes and moulded surround, on first floor. Ground floor
has a 3-light C19 window with short flanking pilasters, a C19
door with 2 arch-headed panes (moved from elsewhere) and a
double-hung sash with small panes and moulded surround.
Off-centre ridgeline stack and one small gabled dormer with
2-light casement window.
To the rear is a part 2-storey and part single-storey
extension, retained from former public house use. 4 bays of
timber-framing, largely elm, the southern bays forming large
chamber on ground and first floors with flat chamfered and
stopped spine and bridging joists. Central wall posts are
jowlless and without tiebeam and southern end of structure has
been truncated. Narrow stack bay with jowled posts and open

presumably a service room on ground floor. Roof contains one
poorly-shaped crown post and side purlins with suggestions of

with half-domed interior, Tuscan pilasters, serpentine
shelves, from elsewhere in Harwich. Brick-vaulted cellar in
