Interior: At west end between Nos 75 and 76 is a medieval timber framed closed
truss probably of cruck construction. This may be a survivor of a previous
building now flanked by later buildings or No 76 may yet incorporate other
contemporary material not now visible. It has slightly cambered tie-beam, convex
brace, queen struts and a slightly cambered collar, the top of an apparent cruck
is also visible. The C17 house had kitchen to the left and parlour to the right
with cellar under. Timber framed partition walls, chamfered beams, newel stair,
fireplace with eared surround on the first floor, interior otherwise altered
by conversion to two cottages in C18 and conversion back.
