GV II House with ground-floor shop, probably C17 with later alterations, and late C20 modifications.
MATERIALS: Timber-framed, refronted in brick; plain-tile roof. Modern tile-hung gable wall to right.
PLAN: Small, two-bay, two-storey plus attic, building fronting on to the High Street pavement with later extensions to the rear.
EXTERIOR: Timber-framed building, probably C17, clad with pale pink bricks with darker red bricks to quoins and to window and door edges in later C18 or early C19 when the building line was pushed outward onto the pavement by about 0.5m. The front façade has a large, six-over-three paned shop window (seemingly a C20 replacement) with the front door to its left and to the first floor two 16-paned casements extending upward to the roof line. The gabled attic's conversion for residential use (at unknown date) is indicated by long dormer windows to front (replaced c2000) and rear. To the rear two smaller multi-paned casements are visible at first-floor level; the original ground-floor arrangement is obscured by a single-storey brick extension with catslide roof and a further flat-roofed C20 one.
INTERIOR: To the ground floor two internal transverse beams divide the C17 building into three sections with exposed joists between them. To the front the original corner posts are visible with decorative jowls. First inner transverse beam with chamfers and double-notched stops; supporting wall posts have decorative jowls...
