fine early C16 moulded timber ceiling which does not extend the full width

is lit by a frieze window. The first floor of the street range has the re-
mains of the C15 timber frame with expanded head wall posts, arch braces
and cambered ties. C19 roof, but the south gable has a truss embedded into
it, showing that the roof had diminished principal rafters, windbracing and
large cambered collars. Beneath the rear range is a 2 bay brick built under-
croft with heavy, double order diagonal ribs, 2 side and one end chamber.
The building is graded II for the undercroft, which forms part of an impor-
tant group within the City walls and for the surviving late C15 timber framing.
