red brick shaft.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attics; possibly part of a longer

one boarded. 2 boarded windows to the ground storey. 2
flat-headed dormers have old 2-light single bar casement
windows. 2 entrance doors, one to part of the ground storey
only.
INTERIOR: some main components of the timber frame are exposed
inside. The bay at the south end has a chamfered ceiling beam
on the ground storey and very long jowls to the main posts in
the room above. The remaining 2 bays have a lower ceiling
level to the ground storey: any visible ceiling beams are

fireplace has a bolection-moulded surround. The attics are
plastered.
Adjoining the south-west corner of the house is one wall of a
former timber-framed building: in 2 narrow bays with close
studding and a middle rail above a high brick plinth. It is
not clear whether this framing formed part of No.96B Risbygate
Street.
