House forming part of a row that is possibly all of 1 late medieval build which
includes Nos. 2 - 12. C15 or earlier. Plastered cob with stone footings. Thatched
roof, half-hipped to right-hand end. Probably a variant of the 3-room, cross-passage

room to rear (now rebuilt as No. , School Road, q.v.). 2-storeys.
