House, later with 2 shops, now a single shop with storage
above. Early C16 core; C19 front and rear addition, now
absorbed in a long C20 extension. Part timber-framed and
formerly jettied; fronted in white brick; steeply-pitched
slate roof with wide plain eaves.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attics; 3 window range: sashes in
flush cased frames, the 2 outer formerly 16-pane and the
centre 12-pane, but now with replaced top-opening upper
lights. A pair of similar C19 shop fronts to the ground
storey, each with a recessed half-glazed entrance door at one
side and a heavy projecting fascia with ornate console
brackets and a blind box. 2 flat-headed lead-covered dormers
have 2-light 4-pane casements.
INTERIOR: ground storey in 2 long bays, formerly with a
partition wall and doorway between them. Each side has the
front half of the ceiling exposed with plain heavy closely
spaced joists set flat; the remainder of the joists have been
replaced. To the left, the main beam has a wide chamfer and
cut-off stops. The cross beam in the north end wall has no
pegging for studs and the frame may have originally continued
for a further bay. On the right, the main beam has double ogee
mouldings. No framing is exposed on the upper storey. The roof
timbers are C19 and C20 replacements.
