House in row, with shop. Mid or late C16 remodelling of
earlier structure. Rendered timber-frame, tile roof, brick
stack. A small-scale twin-gabled property with 2 jettied
storeys, the front range being parallel to street.
2 storeys with attic, 2-windowed. To each gable a small
vertical light, and at first floor 2-light casements with a
horizontal bar. The ground floor has a 2+3-light C19 display
window on a high stall-riser, and, to the left, an C18 door
with inserted decorative cast-iron grille in the upper half.
The ground floor has been underbuilt to the jetty, and the
first floor has a moulded casing to the bressumer. The gables,
which run back to the main transverse roof, have C19 scalloped
barge-boards with finials. There is a lofty brick ridge stack
to the right. C18 work to rear includes casements with thick
glazing bars.
INTERIOR: ground floor, which has a very low ceiling, has
various beams. Inside the shop front are 2 cast-iron
quatrefoil-section columns below the main bressumer. C16
two-bay queen-post roof with clasped purlins; moulded tie beam
and other elements of timber frame (largely obscured) are
indicative of earlier origins, probably surviving from a C15
hall house from which No.17 (qv) has survived as the former
solar wing.
