4407 Nos 4, 6, 8 and 8A
TQ 46 NE 9/300

Later C16/earlier C17. Two separate but adjoining timber framed structures with later
alterations and extensions.

Nos 4/6 was formerly a 2-storey, 2-bay lobby-entry house with an attic in the roof. The
lower part of the front wall appears to have been rebuilt in the C18 and the gable dormer
at the front of No 6 is probably also of this date. There are two modern single-storey
front extensions. Apart from these alterations the timber frame survives largely intact.
The roof has side purlins clasped between collars and principal rafters, with straight
wind-bracing to the purlins. The lobby-entry plan form survives inside with the staircase
(in what is now No 4 - No 6 has only a ladder to the upper floors) in the characteristic
position behind the chimney stack. Original fire places survive on ground and first floors
in No 6.

No 8A is lower than Nos 4 and 6 and set at right angles. It is also timber-framed and
appears also to be of the lobby-entry type. The roof of Nos 4 and 6 has been extended
sideways to meet the ridge of No 8A's roof.
