On corner of West Borough and Blind Lane. Of several builds. Early C18 origin,
enlarged in late C18 and C19. Brick walls, tiled roof, brick stacks. Two storeys.
Original centre section has platband at first floor level, and central doorway, now
altered to form a window. Ground floor has two 2-light casement windows with lead
lights and a later inserted canted bay window, with double hung sashes with glazing
bars. First floor has three 2-light casement windows with lead lights. A change in
the brickwork above the first floor windows suggests that the roof has been raised
here. The extension to the north has 2 double hung sash windows with arched heads
and glazing bars on the ground floor and one similar window on the first floor.
The first extension to the south has, on the ground floor, a canted bay window
similar to that in the centre section. The first floor has one double hung sash
window with glazing bars. The second extension to the south, of C19 date, has no
windows on the ground floor, but 2 double hung sash windows with glazing bars on
the first floor. At the rear, the original section has a 2 storeyed extension, of
brick and tile. A brick boundary wall extends round the site into Blind Lane. An
important building in the street. Original central section believed to have been a
toll-house. RCHM Monument 76.
