(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.86 AND 87)
2 houses, later combined in one commercial building. C16 and
C17; extensively restored in C20. Timber-framed and jettied
along the street frontage, with exposed timbers. Tiled roof.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. The framing is in 2 phases, related to
the 2 separate houses which made up the building. On the
right, 4 C16 bays; jetty supported by small solid brackets;
weathered bressumer with guilloche ornament.
On the left, a shorter later C17 section with widely-spaced
studs and primary bracing to the upper storey; the bressumer,
apparently reused, has worn running leaf carving which does
not accord with the date of the frame. 6 windows to the upper
storey and 7 to the ground storey, all C20 small-paned 2-light
and single-light casements. A C20 gabled addition at the rear
contains the stair and back entrance.
INTERIOR: studding exposed along the inner front wall on both
storeys. The ceiling beams on the ground storey appear to be
all reused, replaced during the C20 restoration. No original
partitions remain. On the upper storey all the framing in the
4 C16 bays is exposed, including some C20 replaced components.
Good studding without wall bracing. Indications of several
blocked original and secondary windows. Main posts with long
jowls; cambered tie-beams, but only one truss with arched
No evidence of original upper partitions. An edge-halved and
bladed scarf in each wallplate. Rafters, exposed to below
collar level in 2 bays, have no principals or windbraces. Few
timbers exposed in the C17 end; later partitioning introduced.
Scheduled Ancient Monument.
