House in row, ground floor remnant only, now (1992) used as a
club-room. Early C17, remodelled C19. Painted brickwork, flat
felted roof. Remains of a former 3-storey parallel-plan
jettied house, reputedly destroyed by fire in the mid-C20, but
retaining an important early doorway and door. One storey with
basement, 2-windowed. 4-pane sashes in eared architraves on
stone cills. Pavement cellar access hatch. To the left, set
back on 2 sandstone steps is a fine 4-plank studded door with
strap hinges, under the remains of a deep moulded bressumer,

is late C19 replacement) The front has a high plinth, and a
blocking course with parapet above a 3-course brick string.
