7/156 (previously listed as

GV II


House, perhaps originally incorporating Hillsleigh (q.v.) adjacent.
Probably mediaeval but front remodelled in late C19. Rubble with Cotswold
stone roof, large partly ashlar stack to right. 2 storeys and attics. 2
gabled dormers. 2 windows, glazing-bar sashes with chamfered wooden
lintels to 1st floor, glazing-bar shop window on ground floor. Plain
entry to left. The front has been considerably altered in the last 100
years, but 2 end pieces of timber in the wall may indicate a former timber
frame or even a jetty.
