A C17 house, probably originally a lobby-entry plan of 3 units comprising hall, parlour and service room, with rear wing possibly added later. It was originally 1½ storeys but was subsequently raised to a full upper storey. It is shown on the 1873 Ordnance Survey as 2 dwellings. The rebuilding of the front in brick, at which time the original entrance in line with the stack was concealed, was probably contemporary with this subdivision.


An L-plan timber-framed house, with white-painted brick front, slate roof hipped to the R and T-shaped brick stack R of centre. In the 3-window front the entrance is at the R end, within an added gabled porch with boarded door. Another, blocked doorway is L of centre. Both entrances probably date from the rebuilding of the front in brick and its division into 2 dwellings. Windows are 2-light and 3-light casements. The rendered L gable end has a C20 bay window. The R side wall and rear are box-framed with white-painted brick nogging and in the main range the framing shows heightening contemporary with the raising of the rear wing. The R side has, to the R of a low gabled brick projection, a 2-light casement window.

In the rear gable end of the wing the framing, part of which has been replaced in brick, nevertheless reveals the original roof line, the raising of the eaves to create a full upper storey and the subsequent raising of the ridge. It also has a 2-light window lower R and similar window in the upper storey, of which the latter is a replacement in an earlier opening. Against the rear of the main range is an added white-painted brick 1-storey lean-to with half-glazed door.
