(south) side wall contains some stone. Asbestos-slated roof.

2 storeys. Front to churchyard has plank door in centre of
ground storey: C20 louvred door to left of it, C20 window to
right. Upper storey slightly jettied; 2-light window, each

HISTORICAL NOTE: gallery and back block houses, of which this,
with No.19 High Street, forms a part, are rare. Across a small
courtyard to the north is the C17 back block of No.20 High
Street (qv). Together the 2 houses provide an interesting
example of the way buildings develop in the centres of old
