Probable C17 building, extending between Maidenburgh Street and Ryegate
Road. The west front to Maidenburgh Street has been rebuilt with modern
brick and a modern addition on the north. But the old building remains
behind and on to Ryegate Road is a gabled front, the ground floor faced
in brick. 2 storeys, timber-framed, plastered end weather-boarded, the
roofs tiled.
