There are records of a house on this site in the C15 or early C16 but the
present building appears to date from the late C16 to early C17. Its earlier
name was Nemefield and it was originally one house. Later a back part was
added and the house was divided into cottages. After 1860 it was the village
Post Office and stores. Two storeys timber-framed, the first floor now pebble-
dashed, the ground floor encased in brick. Four windows, 2 of which are sliding
casements. External brick chimneystack. The rear elevation has 4 gables.
Nos 1 and 2 Downs Cottages have a blocked in inglenook fireplace.
