639-1/15/381 (West side)
House, formerly with 2 shops. C18 front; late C15/early C16
interior, with possible earlier core and C19 addition.
Timber-framed and rendered; plaintiled roof with a wood
modillion eaves cornice.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, attic and cellar. 2 window range: two
2-light casements to the upper storey with a single glazing
bar in heavy flush frames. On the ground storey the remains of
2 different early C19 shop window surrounds with pilasters and
cornices and replaced C20 windows.
A roof-light in the front slope of the roof. The recessed
central door is half glazed in a moulded architrave with a
flat cornice hood on shaped brackets. The roof of a C19
2-storey rear range tops over the front. This has flint lower
walls and timber-framed upper walls, now all roughcast
rendered. One 12-pane sash window in a flush cased frame to
INTERIOR: a small cellar below the front is vaulted in C19 red
brick. Interior in 2 bays. The left hand ground storey room
has a fine timber ceiling with heavily moulded beam and joists
and an applied cornice with rudimentary folded leaf ornament.
There is no evidence for an underbuilt jetty and the ceiling
is higher than in the adjoining room, suggesting that it may
have been inserted into an earlier structure with an open
hall. The original partition walls have been removed and all
timbers in the rest of the house are concealed; the roof is
inaccessible. The entrance door leads into a cross entry
position which may well be original.
