Timber-framed; jettied along street frontage; slate roof with
a plain wood eaves soffit.

with a rectangular fanlight with lattice glazing bars and to

INTERIOR: cellar below both halves of house is approached from
No.78: it has elliptical barrel-vaulted ceilings of narrow red
bricks; walls part rubble. On the interior of No.78 the
timber-framed core is overlaid by major C19 alterations. A
rear ground storey room has a much altered open fireplace with
only the lintel exposed.
A mid-C18 stair balustrade and 4-panelled doors to the upper
storey. No.78A has one room on each storey and a C20 rear

The main ceiling beam on the ground storey is boxed in; the
corresponding beam on the 1st storey has a double ogee
moulding. No access to the roof.
