thatched roof. Old brick end stack to right and C20 brick end stack to left
(rebuilding of earlier stack).
Plan and development: C17 three-room plan, with end stacks and unheated central
room. Entrances into central room and right-hand room, possibly suggesting that the
house may have been, divided at some time. Probably C18 or C19 outshut (probably

central room. Two storeys with one-storey additions to rear.

ground floor; late C20 two-light plastic casements in old openings. Doorways off-

wooden lintel (opening later reduced in width) and square recess in wall to left with
shelves. Left-hand ground-floor room also has C17 chamfered beam with broach stops
reused as lintel above (possibly inserted in the C19 to create a larger opening for a
shop window - window since reduced). First floor and roofspace not inspected.
