House. Early C17 possibly with earlier origins. Rendered cob walls. Gable ended
thatched roof. Projecting rendered stone lateral stack with brick shaft, small
brick shaft at right end.
Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to the right whose
gable end fireplace may have been inserted. Hall heated by front lateral stack.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front of circa late C19 6-pane sashes
except for 3-light C20 casement to left on ground floor. C20 part glazed to left
and C20 panelled door to right of centre.
Interior: most early features concealed by later modernisation. One rough beam is
visible in the lower room; there is reputed to be a blocked staircase next to its
fireplace. 2 early C18 fielded 2-panel doors survive.
Roof: trusses replaced apart from one C17 truss with a collar halved on with
dovetail joint. This is one of the few early houses to survive in the town centre
and it occupies a prominent position.
