A late C16 timber-framed and plastered house with an C18 cross wing at the north

attics and cellars. 2 window range on the east and west fronts, of the C16 block
and 1 window range on the C18 cross wing. Cl8 fenestration, double-hung sashes
with glazing bars (some with vertical glazing bars), The west front is double-jettied
with moulded fascias, on shaped brackets (the lower bracket at the south end
is carved). There are 2 C17 pargetted panels, one of a Tudor rose and crown
and the other a Royal Coat of Arms. The east front was originally double-jettied
and part of the upper jetty survives in a recessed centre panel on the 1st storey
containing a C17 pargetted panel with griffons and a heraldic device surrounded
by a floral border. All the C17 pargetting was much defaced in the C18. The .
ground storey is built out with a C2O shop and the C18 crosswing has a C19 bow
window. Roofs tiled, with 1 gabled dormer on the east front. RCHM (47).
