House and shop, now offices. C15 and early C19. Timber-framed
with yellow gault brick front. Roof of plain tiles, hipped at
N end behind parapet. 2 storeys. First floor of front has 2
double hung sash windows, each with gault flat arches and a
double-hung sash window with one vertical glazing bar and red
brick rubbed brick arch. The ground floor has central rebuilt
doorcase with pilasters and flat hood and C20 shop fronts.
Access to rear yard at S end of facade with rendered flat arch
over. C20 extensions to rear, in yard and remnants of
timber-framed buildings incorporated in yard walls to SW. Rear
of C15 rear wing encased in red brickwork. Former C15
hall-house with single formerly gabled and jettied cross-wing
at N end. This is of 4 bays with integral service cross
passage which extended to the rear as open sided arcade to
courtyard (similar to Swan Public House, Maldon, Essex). The
front room was constructed as a shop and the room behind (with
fragmentary wall paintings) was formerly the parlour. Evidence
survives for former spered wall to hall which has inserted C16
floor and was raised in height in C17. Cross-wing has simple
crown-post roof. Interesting example of an `urban' plan form,
designed to maximise a restricted site.
