casement at second floor. Stack at eaves position on adjoining
ridge, shared with No.49A. The back gable wall, rebuilt in
brick has steel windows, at ground floor to segmental brick

the bottom; first floor has a front room with C17
scratch-moulded panelling throughout, and a cornice; the front

rear room behind has scratch-moulded panelling to one corner
with lozenges to each panel, with a dogleg stair in between;

The interior has retained some good C17 features including the
panelling and the smoke bay - a rare and notable survival.
