History

C18 to C19 front, to late medieval or C16 timber framed house. Old photographs show that it has been reduced: there was a smaller oriel on ornate brackets with Georgian sashes and this carried a timber-framed plastered jettied gable which projected from the present hipped roof. An early C19 drawing shows it with an inn-sign probably of the Golden Fleece. Occupied by Mrs Baker, milliner and Baker & Jones, saddler in 1884, and by F.E. Harris, confectioner 1926. First floor had a large late C19 canted oriel window with plate glass sashes and moulded cornice, removed by accident 2005.
