A C15-C16 timber-framed and plastered building, originally the Old Neptune
Inn, considerably restored but retaining many original features. A C15 hall
block extends east and west and a C16 Solar wing extends south at the rear.
It is dated 1639, probably recording the time alterations were made to the
house. The front has a projecting eaves with a carved eaves board supported
by carved brackets. The first storey has 2 oriel bay windows with lattice
leaded lights and fine carved frames, supported on carved brackets. Small
mullioned casements flank the oriels below the eaves. The ground storey has
one 6-light mullioned and transomed window (with 2 carved mullions). There
is a 4-centred doorway with carved spandrels representing Neptune and a
coa serpent. A painted panel between the oriels has a similar representation.
At the rear a solar wing extends south, timber framed and plastered, with
a jettied upper storey with large casements and a large mullioned and transomed
window on the ground storey. The interior has a fine C17 fireplace and
moulded beams and ceiling joists. Roofs tiled, with 2 gabled dormers on
Nos 80 and 80A, Nos 84 to 92 (even) form a group of C15-C17 timber famed
Also Nos 80 to 80A, Nos 84 to 92 (even) form a group with Nos 77 to 81
