House, now 3 houses. Late C16, altered in C19 and C20. Timber framed,
plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 4 bays facing N, with central
stack. Full-length catslide extension to rear. C20 single-storey extension
with flat roof to rear of nos. 97 and 99 (at left end). C20 2-storey lean-to
extension with felt roof to rear of no. 103 (at right end). C20 extension to
left of no. 97, comprising car port with rooms over. 2 storeys with attics.
4-window range of early C19 sashes of 16 lights, with some crown glass. 2 C20
replicas in left extension. One C19 casement in gabled dormer in no. 99, and
another in no. 103. Four 4-panel doors, the lower panels flush, grouped in
pairs with joint flat canopies on profiled brackets. (Nos. 101 and 103 are

extension, the studding and collar of the clasped purlin roof is exposed; and
some studding is exposed in the car port, with C20 brick nogging. C20 casements
to rear, including some in flat-roofed dormers, first floor and attic. Jowled
posts. Diamond mortices for former unglazed windows in rear girts and
wallplates, now enclosed by catslide extension. No evidence of unglazed windows
at front, so probably built in the period 1575-90 when glazing was being
generally adopted in conspicuous situations. Near-straight tension braces
trenched inside studs. Unchamfered axial beams, plain joists of square section.
Above first floor, chamfered axial beams, unstopped, with plain joists of
vertical section. C20 hearths. Blocked original doorways between bays on both
