chamber on the first floor, jowled posts, internal wall
bracing and one 4-light diamond mullioned window. The
crown-post roof is single jowled with single down braces to
tie-beams and large tie-beam arch braces. On the ground floor,
the structure has largely been replaced by brick with one
moulded brick, probably half and arch from a corbel table
embedded in the wall. This structure was probably a commercial
building.
