4/226 Post Office and Stores


Post office, shop and dwelling. Mid or possibly early C16. Originally of 2-
cell cross-entry plan, a further cell added c.1700. One storey and attics.
Timber-framed and plastered. Pantiled roof, formerly thatched. C19 raking
dormers with casements. Various C19 windows; the shop entrance at the gable
towards The Street has a C20 half-glazed panelled door. Good framing for a
small C16 house; studwork with tension-stud bracing. The half-hip at the left
hand end remains within the left hand gable, and beneath it is a blocked
diamond-mullioned window. Roof probably of coupled-rafter type. A rear
cross-entry doorway has a damaged 4-centred arched head. Heavy unchamfered
floor joists. The chimney backs onto the cross-entry; the removal of the
service end partition and the provision of a fireplace is probably an
alteration of c.1700, when this end became a parlour. At the right-hand end a
further cell was added at the same time.
