(Formerly Listed as:
(East side)


House, believed to have been an inn; now shop. Probably
early/mid C17, the front part rebuilt in early C19. Solid
rendered front; side walls of front part mostly of red brick.
Roof not visible from street. One-room-wide plan; many of
internal partitions removed, but appears to have been 4 rooms
deep, the middle rooms lit through the right side wall. 3
storeys. 1-window range. Ground storey has late C20 shop
front. Upper-storey windows triple-sashed and set in a single
round-arched recess with moulded architrave and enriched
bracket-like keystone. Windows have barred sashes: 6 over 6
panes in centre lights, 1 over 1 panes in side-lights;
3rd-storey window differs in that centre light is round-arched
to make a Venetian window; all 3 lights have only one row of
panes in upper sashes, that in the centre with the addition of
a radial bar. Front finished with a prominent, open triangular
pediment supported at each end with paired brackets.
INTERIOR: ground storey of front 2 rooms wholly altered; rooms
above disused at time of survey and largely stripped of
plaster. Early C19 straight-flight wooden staircase in rear
right-hand corner, rising from second to 3rd storey. In rear
left-hand corner a reused piece of mid C17 panelling with
small oblong panels having bolection-moulded surrounds. Rear 2
rooms have in ground storey 2 ovolo-moulded ceiling beams with
plain raised stops; the front one has additional stops marking
the position of a side passage to right. Third storey has C19
chimneypiece with iron basket-grate. Both sections have C19
roof timbers, but of different designs; that to rear has
king-post trusses. A boldly articulated early C19 facade, one
of the best of its date in the High Street.
