listed as Candlestick)


Cottage. Two building periods in late C17. Timber framed plaster rendered
on brick and clunch plinth with long straw thatch roof and red brick ridge
stack. Single range and lobby entry plan. One storey and attic. Three
dormers, including two with gables. Horizontal sliding sashes with small
panes. At ground floor, four windows including a similar C19 horizontal
sliding sash. C19 panelled door to lobby entry. Bay to the east is . -
probably an addition of late C17. Framed and plaster rendered. The studwork
of the original east gable and wall was partly renewed when the bay was
added. Inside: abutting, contemporary clunch and red brick inglenook
hearths. One ground floor now with run-out stop chamfered joists. Another
probably with the ceiling inserted later. Original house in three structural
bays and a narrower bay for the chimney (similar to No. 48, West Green.) The
later C17 bay was used as a butchers shop. This and the other cottages on
the north side of the High Street form an encroachment on the Green probably
begun c.1650.
