The Broadway)


House. Early C16 with C17 and mid-C19 rear extensions and a
mid-C19 front rebuilt in the 1980s. Timber-framed, red brick
front relaid in stretcher bond, old plaintiles.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attics; one-and-a-half bays. A 16-pane
sash window to each storey, both with plain reveals and cement
flat arches. A flat-headed-lead covered dormer has a 2-light
casement window. Panelled door in a plain surround with a
semicircular cement arch. A raised cement band runs between
the storeys just above the top of this arch.
INTERIOR: contains the one-bay service end, originally
jettied, of a house which continued further west, but probably
ante-dating the building which is there now. The front ground
storey room, formerly divided into 2, has an exposed ceiling
with the remains of heavy unchamfered joists, a chamfered main
cross-beam with empty mortices for studding, and a blocked
There is evidence of a inserted corner fireplace, now blocked.
The service end partition wall largely consists of replacement
timbers and the partition wall to the east seems to be part of
No.8 (qv), with a C20 fireplace. The half-bay on the west,
which now forms an entrance corridor with stair, appears to be
linked with No.6 (qv): on the upper storey the end of a
chamfered beam protrudes through the party wall.
