origin. Rendered mass wall; thatched roof, hipped at ends;
large projecting front lateral stack with roughcast shaft and
paired pots with toothed cresting. Single-depth to main range,
2-rooms-wide, now with left and right doorways facing stairs.
Later rear outshuts (not thatched).

stack shouldered with drip ledges. Recessed C20 doors to left
and right; ground-floor C20 small-pane bow windows towards the
centre. 4 first-floor small-pane timber 3-light casements. The
right return of No.34 has a first-floor window with probably
early C19 two-light casement with glazing bars. INTERIOR:
No.32 modernised. No.34 said to retain early exposed carpentry
but access to interior unobtainable on survey. One of a group
of pre-C19 vernacular houses in Preston.
