Shop and dwelling, now offices. Late C16/early C17. Roughcast timber framing;
old plain-tile roof with rubble and brick end stack. 2-unit gable-fronted plan.

floors plus a C20 shop window and entrance. Left return wall retains a
horizontal-sliding sash with old glazing, and has a 4-panel door and C20 shop

shared with No.40, Kings Arms Hotel (q.v.), with 3 rebuilt diagonal shafts.
Interior: massive stop-chamfered beams with heavy square joists; winder stair
from cellar to attics; some 2-panel doors and a fragment of C17 panelling;
