Left hand bay has C17 to C18 brickwork and some timber-framing of this period.
Overhang to Ifield Road elevation. This elevation has a 2-storey range stuccoed,

C17 brick chimneystack. Internally, some of the structural timber-framing is exposed
on the first floor. Square framing and some close-studding. The roof is not earlier

attic and there is a short run of the balustrade at the stair foot. Early C18 corner
fireplace with wooden bolection-moulded surround. When the shops were formed in the
Mid C19 the upper storey was underpinned on iron stanchions.
