INTERIOR: not inspected but seen to agree with frontage.
Ground floor has pair of timber lintelled back-to-back
fireplaces. Common joists flat laid, step-stop chamfers to
principals. The building appears to be a very early example of
a 2-celled lobby entrance house with the house framed round
the central stack as is common in the C17. Technical details
imply an early C16 dating, an impression strengthened by the
tapering of the soffit of the principal jetty joists, a local
fashion seen in similar buildings of the early /mid C16 in
Saffron Walden eg. Nos 2 & 4 Church Path (qv).
