C18, but this is a medieval plot and therefore parts of the

exposed; end stacks have rendered chimneyshafts with old pots;
slate roof.
PLAN: 2 rooms wide and 2 rooms deep.

overlights, with 2-light display windows between. Right-end
timber plain pilaster to plain fascia. 2-window front above of
horned 4-pane sashes including a pair to first-floor right.
Plain eaves. Hipped roof end onto street.
INTERIOR: Right front and back rooms separated by probably
