9/119 No. 7


House, late C17. Brick on cobbled plinth with remnants of a timber frame.
Welsh slate roof. Two storied, two unit plan with doorway to left of centre
in wide architrave, one 3-light window to its right and the original blocked
opening right again, with flat arched brick head. One blocked window to
the left, and two others of 1 and 3-lights. Wall plate and a raising of
the roof visible above. The principle feature of the elevation is the cyma
moulded string course which runs across the facade and forms a round arch
over the blocked lower opening and continues across the gable wall, where
there is another round arch, the 3-light window which it now contains not
originally related to it. A further string course forms another arch over
the first floor window in the gable wall. To the right of the front elevation,
is an additional lower timber framed bay with timbers of slight scantling
forming square panels with arch braces. Two new windows, one to each floor.
