INTERIOR: rear face of doorway of heavy proportions with deep
2-centred arched head set on W side of South Street passage,
surrounding timber framing considerably replaced by brickwork,
especially towards frontage. Probably originally jettied to
street but evidence now absent. First floor considerably
obscured but 3 principal bays, one with cambered tie-beam and
arched brace, wall plate and brace chamfered, also collar
purlin of a crown post roof. At rear, door or window head with
adjacent heavy tension brace. Further to rear added block
jettied on W side, inferior later studding, probably late C16.
Rail on W side below windows suggests that original purpose
was a small gallery. On High Street frontage a cornice of
classical profile remains within present room showing that the
frontage is now slightly built out to the street. The building
was a cross-wing to a hall house that continues into No.62
(qv) and probably onto the site of No.64 (qv). The visible
doorway in South Street led from a hall to the the W into the
cross-wing. Nos 60, 62 & 64 form a group.
