7/121 No 73
House with shop. Possibly C16, re-modelled in the late C17 with
C18 front recently completely rebuilt. Brick front, timber-
framed to rear; Kent tile roof. Front room to ground floor has
ceiling beam and large joists that could be C16 and these may be
coeval with a diamond-mullioned window to the rear (not
internal); all other features are c.1700 or later. The rear
wings have a complicated history and represent two or three
building phases. Front (rebuilt in replica); 3 storey;
symmetrical 2 window range with 3-light dormer. 12-pane hornless
sash windows to upper floors, and early C19 style double fronted
shop. Rear wings under asbestos or concrete tiled roofs.
Interior: front room with ceiling cross beam and substantial
joists; framing to rear with mortices for a diamond-mullioned
window. Rear wing (to W) with early (possibly Cl7) framing and
ceiling beams, all difficult to interpret. 1st floor: front room
with complete set of large fielded panels; almost complete dog-
leg stairs with turned balusters and square-section newels - all
this looks c.1700. To the rear of this room is a fireplace with
brick hood and an earlier chamfered bressumer.
