House, now a shop. Late C15. Timber framed, plaster and painted brick, roofed
with red clay tiles. L-plan, consisting of 4 bays facing S, and left wing of
3 bays extending to rear, with one axial chimney stack and one at rear end.
Single-storey flat-roofed extension beyond, C20. 2 storeys. Twin shop windows
with C19 door, 2 early C19 sashes of 12 lights. First floor, one splayed oriel
with sashes of 2-4-2 lights, late C19, and 3 early C19 sashes of 12 lights.
The interior has an underbuilt jetty on both street elevations with dragon beam
between. All beams of the front range are moulded (one boxed in) all joists
of horizontal section chamfered with step stops, jointed with unrefined soffit
tenons. In the rear wing the beams are chamfered with step stops; most of the
joists are plain. The rear end bay has a lodged floor of plain joists of
horizontal section arranged longitudinally. All posts have jowls and are
chamfered with step stops. On the first floor some close studding is exposed

site in the C15, the road to the left leading up the SW side of the River Stour
to Lamarsh and beyond, interrupted by Secretaries Farm before 1777 (Chapman
and Andre map).
