House and shop. Fifteenth century, with late eighteenth-century front. Timber frame, brick front, steep-pitched clay tiled roofs. Two storeys. Two-bay timber framed range parallel to the street with C20 extension to rear. C20 shopfront to ground-floor; two small-paned sash windows to first floor with dentil eaves cornice.
INTERIOR. Southern bay seems to have been open hall, for the roof is heavily sooted; northern bay enclosed by stud partitions and floored at first floor level. Central tie beam with crown post. Southern bay has collar purlin roof with collars lap jointed to the rafters; the collars appear to be cambered. Northern bay has lost its collars and now has side purlins and inserted queenposts. First floor has plank door with hinges perhaps from the late C17 when these alterations may have been made. Other features may survive beneath later boxing in and rendering. Access to the upper parts is from C20 rear extension, which is not of special interest.
Included as a surviving example of a late medieval town house.
