11/12/69 No.7
(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.5 AND 7)


Small house. Early/mid C17, with some late C19 modernisation.
Mixed construction; stone rubble side walls and timber-framed
front, partly exposed framing, partly plastered and lightly
blocked out as ashlar; right end stone stack with rendered
chimneyshaft and pots; slate roof.
PLAN: Small one-room plan, with secondary service extension to
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys; single-window front. Late C19
modernisation respecting style and much of the fabric of
original C17 front. Jettied at each floor level. Plastered
ground-floor level has original oak doorframe to left,
multiple moulded surround with large carved stops (now
painted). Late C19 canted bay to right, casements without
glazing bars but alternate panes filled with a pattern of
attractive painted panes of leaded glass. All jetties have
plain plastered soffits and ends of joists hidden by front
boards. Exposed C17 framing on first floor, moulded rails and
muntins around small panels and blocked 2-light
ovolo-mullioned windows each side of central canted bay in
same style as that on ground floor, except for C17 brackets
carved as bearded men with breasts and with contemporary
chip-carved timber panels between the brackets. Second floor
plastered with similar canted bay and plain shaped brackets.
Jettied attic contains small casement with glazing bars under
full-width gable with crossroof back to main gable-ended roof
running parallel to the street.
INTERIOR: Shows largely the result of C19 and C20
modernisation. All structural timbers are plastered over and
the fireplaces are blocked by secondary grates. The only C17
feature exposed is a short length of timber screen immediately
inside the front doorway - late C17 with full-height
bolection-moulded panels.
