- II

Shop with dwelling above and to rear. Early C16 with later C16 wing to rear.
2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and plastered; the upper floor was
formerly jettied along the street frontage. Slated roof. At 1st storey are
mid C19 sashes and a long 3-part window, each part having twin segmental-
headed lights. At ground storey is a pair of large-pane shop windows and a
glazed pair of panelled entrance doors, all of c.1980. To left is a 2-bay
hall with part of a service room doorway which has ogee-moulded jambs and
evidence for an arched head. The twin service rooms to right have been united
with a further small room, perhaps originally a shop, at the extreme right.
At 1st storey was originally a long room, perhaps a workshop, with a small
chamber over the hall. Well-exposed framing throughout 1st storey. Now
concealed by the shop front is a moulded bressumer supported on heavy joist-
ends. A narrow rear wing was added in later C16 with a long-wall jetty along
the south side.
