framed, of cruck construction, partly rebuilt in painted brick. Slate roof.
2 framed bays. Former first-floor solar above ground-floor 2-room shop or
business premises. 2 storeys. Dentil brick eaves cornice. Integral
brick end stacks. Two-window front; 6-pane glazing bar sashes with
painted stone cills and lintels. Roughly central 4-panelled door (lower 2
panels beaded flush) with doorcase consisting of Tuscan pilasters supporting
entablature. Interior: substantial remains of C14 house. Unusual central
truss of raised base cruck construction, consisting of chamfered tie-beam
(supporting first floor), slightly curved chamfered blades and collar, and
parallel pegged principal rafters. Ground-floor room with large spine beam
running front to back. Formerly divided into 2 rooms (see mortices on

Remains of post-1720 staircase up to first floor with closed string, column-

staircase from first floor to attic with closed string, splat balusters,

wrought-iron strap hinges. Although altered externally this is a rare
example of a medieval town house, particularly notable for its unusual
framed construction.
